Hi, i was wondering whether to buy a GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 6790 for my GPU. Also will the AMD Radeon HD 6790 allow you to run it on a 520watt power supply?

GTX 460 is stronger it is comparable to HD6850.
Also what is the brand of your psu?
A high quality & branded 520 watt PSU can handle any of those cards without problems.

Depends what you need it for. The 6790 is AMD/ATI so it is more cost efficient. 460 is a stronger GPU though.

ACE? I didn't know if there is some good brand named like that.
Just buy a new power supply to be in the safe side.

You didn't read it all - He's buying a OCZ ModXtreme (I think it's only a 600W Version).
