I want this new PSU:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Ocz+Technology+-+ModXStream...

I currently have 300 watts in my power supply. I am looking into getting the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card. The 660 requires for me to have at least 450 watts, therefore I am upgrading. I need to know if this PSU will be compatible w/ my computer and the new graphics card I want. Here's my specs:

Motherboard: Asus CM6850
Intel Core i7 2600K @ 3400MHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 530
8192MB DDR3-SDRAM

Sorry if I left anything out, I am a beginner at all this. Thanks.

That system seems to use a standard ATX power supply so you should be able to use it without issues.

Okay, thanks. Sorry to sound like such a beginner, but if I understood you right, then you're saying that my computer should be able to handle and fit that PSU with no problems? Sorry, just want to be 100% positive.

D: Best Buy?!? Check Newegg.com first if you don't want to pay more than you should.

Yes, The power supplies can come in different sizes.

So if you had a SFF(small form factor) with a SFX power(Smaller power supply) supply, the ModXtreme would not fit the case.

Since your case has a standard ATX power supply, It will fit the power supply you are looking at.

Just take note of everything you unplug and replug it just the same after.

I think that PSU will be more than enough for your system. You won't even be drawing half the limit from your 12v rail.
