The 750ti uses about 66w of power by itself which is why I said before a CX500 would more than plenty for your setup.

the 650 ti is significantly slower than the 750 ti while drawing more power at the same time.

if you don't mind waiting a couple days, buy online, its cheaper.
EVGA 02G-P4-3757-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 FTW w/ ACX Cooling Video Card - Newegg.com

otherwise I'd just get the cheapest EVGA 750 Ti card from bestbuy.
