Hello,
Currently Looking to upgrade from my GTX 460 to a 660ti or 670!
Can my system handle the upgrade and if so which card should I buy.

System Specs:
Ultra LS600 Lifetime Series 600W Power Supply - ATX
Intel i5 3570k
4 Gigs of ram ddr3 ( Not sure of the brand )
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H


Thanks for your time in advance!

You're looking at a difference of maximum 20W:

So in theory your current setup should handle it. However, Ultra power supplies are a mixed bag (in this case there's a ShenZhen RuiSheng Yuan unit under the label). If that power supply is older than 3 years, replace it, before it blows up your rig.
