    hey vamp we need the model of the power supply in your system it voltage and amp rating on the 12v lines. and the mb or system model info. without this info we cant tell you if video card will run or not.
  2. if you have gtx 260, then 660ti is ok. make sure your psu can handle it.

    not sure how a 260 compares with a 660ti in the power dept. it should be close enough i think
  3. whats the rest of your system specs look like?
  4. A GeForce GTX 660 Ti uses around 18 Watts less than a GeForce GTX 260 during a typical gaming load.

    Both graphics cards require two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors so you should already have that requirement met.
  5. Here's some info from a DxDiag file. Not sure if this has the right info needed.

  6. brand and model of psu, but if your psu could handle the 260, and provided its not a no-name (read: bad quality) psu then you should be ok.
  7. Best answer
    Yea I'ma say your safe.. the 260 probably draws around the same if not more than the 660 ti does so you should be fine and your CPU shouldn't be all that much of a bottleneck
