Well, I would go with a 600 series card at this point. Lower power consumption, cooler card, higher performance.

660Ti v. 580: What I take away from this benchmark is that in modern games the 660Ti does a better job but in everything else it tends to stay pretty close to the 580.

670 v 580: However in this case the 670 does a far better job then the 580

Brands I would recommend:

If you are wanting a plain card nothing special no frills and whistles:
EVGA: Best reference card maker, Good Service (customer support, technical support, warranties, step up program for upgrading to a newer card through exchange.)

Aftermarket solutions: This is probably how I would rank them in that order.

1. ASUS
2. MSI
3. Gigabyte

Also what does the rest of your system look like?

It's the card I'm currently using in my setup its a good card yes. Runs cold, very quiet, performs beautifully. Comes at a cheaper price point then a lot of the other enthusiast aftermarket grade cards.

Ah yea that would make sense. Just make sure you can fit either but yea I can understand that. I had a TX650 for a while its a good power supply. They now have version 2 of the unit so it should be stronger then before I would think. It comes with all the connections you need.

You could go with this one as well. It comes with more PCI-E power connections for the same price. Same level of quality as the TX650v2 both of which use a Seasonic OEM.
