Is a 750w good for a MSI GeForce GTX 660 and Is Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 good for a 660 graphics card?

750 watt should be more then ample, assuming were talking about a single card, and you dont have 5 gazillion hard drives hooked up, in fact, especially if its a good solid name brand 750 its probably overkill, a 5-600 watt major brand like coolermaster, antec, or OCZ should do it.

That looks like a good solid PSU, and Im confused, I thought you already had a CPU?

oooh ok. The i3 is kind of a low end CPU, but so is the video card, so for a budget system theres nothing wrong with it, neither will bottleneck the other. A better CPU couldnt hurt, but your not going to be running into any performance issues-unless your expecting it to run like a high end system, which it will not.
