also if there is not enough power when the system boots up
you will get a pop up window that say's the power too your nvidia graphics
card is insufficient and you will see a loss of performance.
I am not trying too give the op bad advice I am giving him advice from what I have learned
over the past 20+ years of building and working on computers.

ok then OP, try and see what will happen.

that system will pull like 225 watts at max load. PSU should be just fine.

@OP,

Please post a high res pic of the PSU (the specs sticker).
Also, since you're upgrading your system, do yourself a favor and get an SSD as well.



edit:
NVM, it's a solid, AcBel built unit... easily sufficient for a GTX 670/660Ti.

Nothing to be sorry about, you did well to come here.

I thought you was wanting to know what graphic card to go with.If you are playing at 1920 x 1080 then I would go with the Plain GTX660.It is not much slower then the GTX-660TI and in some games the plain GTX 660 beaats the TI version.It just uses less then 130 watts and just needs one 6-pin power connecter,so your power supply should be plenty.The GTX-660 just cost around $229 ($199 with $30 Rebate) and you get tree free games with it at newegg.com.The GTX660Ti version will run you around $80 more.You could use that $80 and buy a good 650watt brand power supply if your is'nt up for the task.

I've actually decided I'm just going to go with a gtx 650 ti, which is on sale for $115. Sure its not going to be as fast as the 660 or 660 ti but I imagine my processor will bottleneck it more. If i need to upgrade it in the future I will, but buying the more expensive one now when I don't really need it is a waste of money. I can just spend that in say 6 months or a year, once I need the more powerful one and the 700 series will probably be out. In gaming I can always just turn down the resolution to 1680x1050 or 720p to get more fps.
I can then save the extra money up towards a new build, or tow rads some more hard drives/ram.
