I am interested in buying this card for my gaming rig.

These are my current computer specs bought it pre made but really wanna swap GPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I assume I need a new power supply so I was gonna get this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would also like to get some more fans just to be safe but honestly I dont know how so if this looks all good and dandy what kind of challenge am I up for i've never installed a psu I have installed a graphics card before but not a expensive one like this my main question though are what am i up for if i do do it alone,also what type of fans should i get for my case and does everything look good for my current pc like will it fit should i get more fans or no?

Think im gonna go with gtx 660 but will it work with my current pc build and will I need more fans?


This is 660 Ti version, a stronger and more expensive card than 660. I find it overpriced, I would rather spend much less for HD 7870 or spend just a bit more for the, stronger in most cases, 7950.

Both 7870 and 7950 are stronger than 570 u originally posted.

If you know how to use a tape measure, you can answer your own question.
