I'm currently looking for a new video card, and i'm trying not to buy a new power supply if I don't have to.
My system specs right now are

AMD Phenom II X4 965 AM3 3.4Ghz 512KB 45NM 125W 4000MHZ

GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

DDR3 Memory, ballistix or something.

Vantec SP-FC70-BL Spectrum System Fan Card

And here is my power supply, I think I bought it in 2008.

It's the same model but the color is different, so i'm not sure if that's an upgraded version or something.

But the the "AC input"( I know nothing about power supplies ) is 100V-240V/9A-4.5A;47-63Hz

I'm deciding on these guys. I'm hoping to spend less than 120, so hopefully that rebate miraculously comes back.

Does anyone have any preference in video cards and will my power supply handle these?
Thanks guys!

The power supply should be enough for those video cards - one question - what are you using the computer for?

aAll of those will work with your PSU. Its not even close to being an issue. I suggest looking at a GTX 650 TI as it is quite a bit more powerful than the 650 non TI.

EDIT: Im assuming this is for gaming.

Yeah you caught me, most definitely gaming of course! I'm getting ready for the elder scrolls online, and in the meantime i'd like to play skyrim/swtor/lotro and others! Ah that GTX 650 TI seems just outta my budget, but is it that much better performance over the GTX 650 or 7770? For ~40-~50 bucks more?
