mobo- Dh61ww
cpu-i5 2500k
ram- 2x4gb (8GB)
hdd- 2 sata hard disks
other -
* 2 x 80 mm case fans
*5 usb drives ( always working)
(one usb port connected to 10 port usb hub.it connected to main power via power adaptor.)
I'm currently running those components by hec raptor 500WP psu without any problem.

Can I put a gigabyte gtx 660 windforce graphic card without any problem.
(I ask this because I don't know whether my psu can handle my rig with graphic card ?

If I'm looking at the correct model, that PSU only supplies 19 amps on the 12v rail. From what I saw while researching, the GTX 660 recommends it having 24 amps. Plus, the reviews of that PSU are not kind, so it might struggle even supplying the claimed 19 amps.

Well, that's a little different from what I read, but still only 22 amps. Since every card is different on the power requirements, you can try it out. If your PC crashes when you put a load on the PSU playing a game, you will have your answer. Hopefully that PSU can supply it's stated specs.

Should be fine, that PSU does 408W on the 12V, so thats 34A combined. The PSU has two 12V rails each limited to 22A=264W, the GTX 660 is rated at 140W. Unless the PSU has terrible 12V layout where the CPU and PCI-E connectors and others draws from the same 12V rail.
