I have no definite info, but it will be close to your $300 budget I think, and be a powerful card

Okay,

You and Dude convinced me.

Thanks again to all.

You're welcome. You will be happy with a 660 I'm sure, but a 760 is going to be more like a 670. I have a 660 and I'm at a crossroad of trying sli, or moving to the 7 series. The 760 has a 256 bit memory interface like kbrady mentioned, which makes a difference at higher resolutions with AA. That's the beauty or downfall of upgrades

If you just want to play a handful of games that aren't the most demanding out there, a mid range card will do you fine.
Kelly,

Nobody responded to my post 5.

Do I need to install more fans?

At idle - 35C.

Under load (lots of programs) up to about 65C.

I ran Prime 95 and it said "Stable" after 9 passes.

That is your CPU. How many case fans do you have and what kind of setup are they in? Not counting the 120mm fan on my radiator, I have 1-200mm fan up top.........no other cooling whatsoever, and my system runs very cool. These new cards have better cooling than the older cards and I doubt you will need to add any extra fans to your system to compensate for the GPU.

So, it has a front 200mm fan, a top 200mm fan and a rear 120mm fan? Yeah, you should be just fine lol.
