    Well let me tell you that 600watts psu would be quite good with both the graphics card that you have mentioned. CoolerMaster "Extreme Power Plus" has some problems with 600 watts power supply. The psu under performs with 600 watts. I would suggest you to mention the clear model of your motherboard. You have not mentioned it completely in your query. Kindly mention it in the next post so that I am able to guide you properly.

    In my view, msi hd 6950 1GB would be the smarter choice than than msi GTX 560 Ti. Let me tell you that your psu CoolerMaster Xtreme PowerPlus 600 Watts and msi hd 6950 1 gb would be better. Msi 6950 1GB is the smarter choice than msi GTX 560 Ti. I would suggest you to go for this one as msi hd 6950 1GB can be overclocked easily and you can even make it to perform on par with msi hd 6970 by changing the BIOS to that of a msi hd 6970.

    If you are never going to overclock and if you don't mind higher power consumption then GTX 560 Ti hawk is better than msi hd 6950 2GB (stock). Do you like playing games? If yes then this will prove good to you. You will have benefits of Physx, Cuda and unbeatable driver support with msi hd 6950 2gb.

    I would suggest you to go for 9800GTX as it the NVIDIA's ninth generation series of graphics cards. It is ready for Microsoft Vista. What operating system do you have? It is equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface for the latest system. It requires one six pin and a 450 watt minimum. As you have CoolerMaster Xtreme PowerPlus 600 Watts psu then probably this is the card that you should look for. Try it.

    well as you have mentioned that you are looking for CoolerMaster Xtreme PowerPlus 600 watts psu with a correct compatible gpu, i would suggest yo to go for MSI 560Ti Hawk. MSI 560Ti Hawk was launched in the early of this year. It has a 256-bit memory bus. it comes equipped with 1024MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz. it pulls a maximum of 170 Watts of power for a thermal threshold of 100 degrees Celsius. it has an 8+1 phase PWM power supply. i think going for this one would be best for you. try it
