Upgrading from a gtx 260 Recommendations needed
So due to issues with my computer I have to reinstall windows and as my computer is a few years old I figured I may as well update it while I'm at it. So I'm looking for a good upgrade from the gtx 260. While I do have some money to throw around I'm not looking for the latest and greatest. I was thinking the gtx 550 or 560.

460,550 or 560 are good options,the 460 being around 20% more advanced than your 260 and all are dx11 cards so even better for you.

The upgrade to a GTX560ti from a GTX260 was well worth it for me. Anything less would be too small and increment, imo.

Would I need to up my power supply or does it draw less power than the gtx260?

The Nvidia minimum recommendation for the GTX260 and GTX560 are the same - 500W. Minimum being the operative word, but the 560 uses a few Watts less than the 260.

Hollywood's favorite - the GTX480 requires a 600W minimum psu, and runs a bit hotter, so a case with good airflow is even more important.
