Naw, you would be fine. The PSU your getting has more then enough connectors required for the GPU. And yes we are picking the GTX 660 because we refuse to deal with the noise of the XFX. If you want to deal with the noise, or temporarily deal with it and buy an aftermarket cooler then go for it. It will be a large enough performance increase to be worth it.

Depends, I'm not sure where to shop in your area, but here they are around $80 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186068

XFX itself isnt that bad, its just the noise the cooler makes is insane, even the dual fan version is loud.

I think i'll probably play it safe and go for the EVGA GTX660 then tongue.gif they seem cheap enough that i could even SLI one in future. (Future PSU permitting ofc)
