GeForce GTX 660 Review
GeForce GTX 660 is a fast-middle-class to low-high-end GFX part of the GeForce 600 Series released by NVIDIA.
It's based on the Kepler GK106 Core with only 960 Shader Processing Units. Its central clock is clocked at 980MHz and goes up to 1033MHz on Turbo Mode. The memory clock, just like the Kepler GK104 based GPUs, is of 1502MHz (operating). Fast GDDR5 was obviously used and paired with a 192-bit bus.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 17% worse than GTX 660 Ti but still on level with previous generation and acclaimed GeForce GTX 570.
This GPU needs to be equipped with a relatively strong Quad Core CPU, such as 3570K or equivalent and upgrading this GPU to anything weaker than a dual-graphics solution, such as GeForce GTX 690, is worthless.

I disagree, I believe the quad core will be ok, there will be almost minimal bottleneck.

The corsair CX500M should be powerful enough for this card, right?

sure no problem, just look at prices of other cards like HD7870/R9 270X which are similar to gtx660 OR gtx760 in your area, if gtx760 is only like 30-40 euro more, get that one for sure, its lot stronger card
