First of all make sure for your current power supply brand and post it.. it may be ok and no need to change. The tx750 is a great power supply.
About the video card, there is not such a card as engtx asus 60.. your missing a number. it may be gtx 460 or 560 or anything.. post it here for help

I can't be certain if the 460 is 768MB, but it gives you an idea of how they stack up IMO.

However, I would think a 550w PSU would do you just fine if you don't plan on adding in a second card later on.

+1 to mochan's recommendations. the corsair TX750 (or even 650w) would be fine if you plan to run the GTX460 768mb in SLI

Agreed with above, you'll most likely need some adapters if the 460 needs two 6 pin (for SLI), but otherwise, the TX650 should be able to power your rig without a hitch.

I wouldn't bother getting some adapters and all that non sense if you plan to run the GTX460 768mb in SLI just buy the corsair tx750 it's built by seasonic if it's the tx v2 and it's more than enough has all your required needs and then some extra breathing room to top it off less hassle great price enough said.

For a single GPU syste, you don't need more than a good 500-550W PSU. For you particular system with a GTX460 or 550ti, a good quality 400-450W is more than sufficient.
