Thinking of Getting New Graphics Card - Help Needed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of buying a new graphics card around Christmas time and would like some help deciding which one to buy.

  • Must be Nvidia
  • Price range of up to £250
  • Main use will be gaming

I have looked at the 650 Ti, 650 Ti Boost, 660, 660 Ti, 670, Low End 680, 760, Low end 770.

I would like advice on which offer the best performance for gaming.

Thanks

My Current PSU is 450W, however it doesn't have the connectors required for a high performance GPU, so i will be getting a new one if i buy a new GPU.
What size PSU do you recommend for these cards?

If you only want one then a good 550 watts is also you need

Something like a Rosewill Capstone

But which 450 watts do you have you might not even need to upgrade it

It is not branded, it came with the case that i bought for £45. The PSU will need upgrading as it does not have PCIE connectors.
