Would a 700 Watt power supply be enough to run this card (GeForce GTX 275) and how much would it run me?

My specs right now are:
Intel Core i5 750
4.GB of Dual Channel RAM
P55M-UD2 Motherboard (Made by Gigabyte)
GeForce 9800GT (Which im trying to upgrade)
20 Inch HP monitor
500GB Westen Digital harddrive

Aloso wondering if the graphics card im tryign to buy will fit the resolution of my 20in screen, Thx

Unless it is a terrible brand a 700w PSU should be fine. I wouldn't recommend that card however as it is overkill for for a 20" monitor and overpriced in general. You can get an HD4890 for significantly less and it will perform similarly.
Almost all 20" monitors are 1600x900 though and for that resolution an HD5770 should be excellent. It is about $160, DX11 and very cool/power efficient. It is approximately 50% more powerful than your 9800GT.

Get HD4890 or HD5850 if you can afford.

i was in chat on WoW and asked about the 275; positive feedback. they suggested get the basic & overclock it myself, but one dude recommeneded liquid cooled cuz of a $100 premium on the difference of the basic 275 vs one cooled & overclocked. idk if im alright w/ puttin liquid or payin more for something that doesnt really need it. wouldnt a couple fans do fine? and how much is good enough on the over clocking if i only have the card for say a few years?
