I have an alienware x51 bought 2 months ago for which i am looking to upgrade the graphics card

My Specs are: I5 3330, GTX 645, 8GB ram, 1Tb HDD and the 240W PSU.

I am looking to upgrade the GPU to Zotac 750Ti 2GB (Link at end) mainly because this was the only card available in India that fits the power limits and price bracket; My main question being if the card is good or not, and will it fit properly and work without any hiccups. I have googled a lot about it but as i am a noob at this, I want some expert advice. And I am open to recommendations as well but please refrain from posting international sellers since the customs in India are extremely high.

P.S I want to be able to play most games at the best settings since as of now GTX 645 can run most if not all at High. Currently I can run BF4 at Mid with everything off on avg. 45 fps so I want something better

P.P.S I am also looking at MSI Geforce GTX 750Ti ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127784 ) please suggest me the better one and if my power supply is enough.

I run the below with no issues:

It's not vastly faster than the 270x, however memory accounts for a lot these days when running in ultra for high texture count.

can you run most games with that on Ultra?with my 270x Im running most games like BF4 and witcher 2 on high with not bad frames, over 60. but thats without any Anti-aliasing etc.

4GB is fine. I just don't see why you should spend $100 for extra VRAM when games don't use it unless playing over 1440p. With the 760 because as powerful as it i,s obviously people wouldn't run high spec games on ultra.

what would be your recommendation then, a stock 760 with the single blower or get a SC version etc? sorry so many questions but its been years since i been into computer stuff. trying to relearn everything again and its difficult lol
