Hmmm i got that part! But if for 4K more i get a better card i think i will go for it. Cause the R9 270X beats the GTX 660.

The R9 270x is slightly better than the 660 in a few games while offering similar performance in others. Your PSU should handle the 270x but its not recommended. AMD recommends a 500W PSU for the 270x albeit a low spec 500W PSU.

An interesting indicator for whether your PSU will handle a certain GPU is looking at the number of PCI-e power connectors. A 270x uses 2 PCI-e power connectors; but the CM EP 460W has only 1. If even the PSU manufacturer didn't intend for it to drive a GPU with 2 PCI-e power connectors, then you can be certain you're skating on thin ice :)

Ok then wont risk a R9 270X with it! Right now i think the GTX 660 will suffice plenty for my gaming needs :)

Thank you for the link! I think it will available for lesser at the store (MD computers).

Their monitors retail for around 500 to 700Rs less :)

Get Zotac GTX 660 dual silencer for Rs 12850 in snapdeal! Better over all that you have chosen or been suggested for the money.

Which one did you end up buying? I'm also in a similar situation but with VX 450 and an overclocked Phenom II X4 940.

VX 450 has one PCI-E power connector. So is it better to go for R7 265 (which uses a single power connector) rather than R9 270x?

VX450 was praised in its days for its quality but my PSU is now around 5 yrs old and don't know if it is ok to push it with a brand new card.

R7 265 is not a too much power hungry card so VS450 should be OK as long as it's not showing any sign of malfunction you can continue using it.

Will a R9 270x be pushing it for the vx450? The price difference between the two is negligible.

There's 15 - 20W difference between R7 265 and R9 270x. With your current cpu R9 270x is Ok for the PSU but the cpu may bottleneck the performance of R9 270x.
