Hi, I've found a GTX 660 for $40 USD. It's compatible with my PC BIOS and the specifications are better than the 750Ti. Is it a good offer? My CPU is an I5-2310 and I have 8Gb of RAM, with a 450w PSU.

I'm trying to see if the GTX 660 is a good fit, not what my PSU is. I know what it is, and I will probably only be using this until December.

And I linked that picture because I explicitly asked to see what PSU you had and you replied with the name of a VGA cooler.

The reason the PSU was brought up is to avoid a cheap PSU failing and destroying your GPU shortly after you install it.

The GTX 660 is a good fit with your setup assuming it fits in your case.
Also, be aware your I3 may have issues in some more demanding modern titles.

I replied with a GPU model because I misread what you said. Believe me, I'm not a tech noob, I just read it wrong, because GPU's were also mentioned in the sentence.
I have an I5. An I5-2310, not an I3.

Lol. And I misread that.

Still, a sandy bridge I5 may have some issues in modern titles, but your I5+GTX660 should be a good combination for modern esports titles,
