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

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.

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.

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
