Hello, I have this psu...http://it.dionicgroup.com/Files/Items/Files/file1_dccpc...

I am hoping to be able to run either GTX 660 or a radeon 7850. I looked at this...

saying that the 660 requires more wattage but needs a minimum of 450w psu. I'm looking at getting either of these two cards.

You should definitely be able to run the 660 unless you are using an older cpu architecture than sandy bridge or certain amd processors.
