Hello all,

I have a gateway fx6860 ur20p desktop pc with the i7-2600 3.4 cpu and 8 gb ram.
the video card is a 1gb 6750 hd radeon. This card is only meeting the minimum requirements for most games id like to play. so im looking at upgrades and like the geforce gtx 660 2gb. Would you all recommend this gpu or is their another i should be looking at?. Also, I am not sure if it would be compatible with the motherboard inside? my power supply is 500 watt, would this be sufficient for this video card?

Thanks in advance

-John

get a GTX670. The 660Ti isn't good value for money.

What's the power supply model? Knowing power ratings isn't enough especially on cheapo units

Not a good unit. If you want to upgrade to a mid-range or high end graphics card, I seriously recommend you upgrade your psu first.

Buy a quality unit from Seasonic, Corsair, Antec or XFX. 500-600W should be enough for a single card.
