I have a XPS 8300 that I plan on upgrading. It came with a 460W PSU and a GT 420 graphics card. I planned on buying the Gigabyte GTX 660 as an upgrade. However, there is currently a great deal on the ASUS GTX 660 for around 169 dollars. Is there a big difference between them? I've heard the ASUS is more quiet but can get hotter. Should I get new fans for this case? There is also currently a deal on the Sapphire Radeon 7870 for 176 dollars that seems like a good deal. How do the GTX 660 and the 7870 compare? Which is a better deal and would they both work with the PSU that came with the computer, or is it worth upgrading? My budget is around 210 dollars.
