Here is what's bothering me..I have msi 560ti and I want to buy msi 660ti, 660ti has lower tdp than 560ti so it should fit fine on my corsair vx450?

And I have motherboard with pci express 2.0, will I loose something if I dont have 3.0?

Thanks!

Nah, there is barely any difference between each PCIe edition. Unless you're using several cards in SLi/Crossfire.

Should run fine if your GTX560 Ti is running smoothly on that PSU, Make sure you have enough amps on your PSU's 12v rail :toast:

Don't wry about the PCI-E 2.0 vs 3.0....barely a difference right now :)

If you read the reviews. the 660ti turns out to be very power-limited, It can't go above 150 watts even with tests like Furmark, unlike 560 that can reach in excess of 200-250 watts when overclocked.
