Hi guys

I don't know much about graphics cards and I'm worried if I try, I'll mess up. I have around US $230 to spend on a new card so I'm looking at getting a Gtx 660 but i'm not which one to get.

It's really not too difficult. Just make sure you watch a few good YouTube videos first and take your time.
You need to make sure you get a reference style 660. These ones blow the hot air out the back of the card and not back into the case. EVGA do a lot of reference style cards so have a look at them. They look more enclosed than the other styles which have larger open fans

I'd get this and be done, it's the sc version for the same price as tigerdirects non sc with free shipping, and free game. Sign up for shoprunner at checkout and get 2 day free shipping. Go to cancel after a few days or they'll charge you, they'll be sad your canceling and offer you 3 more months free. They give you a chance to use shoprunner 3 separate times and then they give you a year free that's like 70$ value and 2 day free shipping all the time.

Thanks for the response
I got the gtx 555 oem
and if its Superclocked wouldn't it use more power? I'm a bit of a nervous nelly about the 330w power supply

The 555 doesn't take all the space so you should be right. The 670s fit perfect. I would think the 760s are the same size.

Yeah you will be happy with the 760 and it will fit my card is 10" and fits, but it's tight.
