    Upgrading graphics cards, need help so my comp doesn't blow up

    My current system:

    OS: Windows 8
    Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor (3.10 GHz)
    RAM: 8.00 GB
    GTX: Nvidia GTX 650


    Upgrading to a Nvidia GTX 660 Ti or a 670? not sure


    What PSU will I need? Anything else so my computer doesn't explode?

    700-750W? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CX75...&keywords=750w
    There's a nice make if you're willing to pay £67. Should be £97 so you're best of getting it now.

    A 650/700W PSU will suffice. However, try to get a bronze/silver/gold one as they're efficient and generally have longer life-spans.
    Also, a 670 is fantastic. Grab the FTW edition too whilst you're at it, same price (or like $5 extra) for basically a 670 Ti (don't exist by the way).
    What kind of cooling you got going on?

    You will want to upgrade your cooling system to a ~1000rpm fans.
