Get the 550Ti, it will require at least a PSU of 400W

They won't run hot unless you have really a bad airflow in your case.

i don't know, my 260GTX had 2 PCI-E pins and ran hot, and lasted 3 years this month, i've just got a 560Ti and that requires the same 2 PCI-E pin connectors and uses half power and runs half as hot.

I'd recommend you 550Ti. Though, 460 is a bit higher than 550 but Ti edition is not that bad. I myself currently having 550ti asus, i think its a top notch for such PSU class

the gtx 460 its faster then the 550ti in benchmarks here is the comparisons big difference and about the 550ti using less power its only a 44wat differnce so go for the gtx 460

4** series was always "loud and hot"
The need for 2xpci power connectors is just the standard form factor for most cards. Well some newer 5** cards need a 6 and a 4 pin, but consumption is minimal.

I never heard of the GTX400 series being 'loud and hot' unless having a malfunctioning fan.
My GTX460 is quiet and has an idle temperature of around 42C.

Lol that's not me talking from experience its just I remember when the 5** range appeared, my favourite magazine kept mentioning how quiet and cool they ran in comparison lol. I've not had an Nvidia card since my 8800gtx! That sounded like a vacuum cleaner lol
