Will AMD Radeon 7950 HD work on my current rig ?

I am going to upgrade my graphics card (the current one I have is GTS 450) and I'm wondering whether it will work or not .
this is my PSU :
an inside look of my case :

I am going to buy the card from amazon and here is the link I've got
http://
I've been wondering also if there might be a better graphics card ( I've looked for some other graphics card like GTX 660 and GTX 660 ti ) that will work on my case, if there are , please provide me with the link ,amazon of course :) .
my current rig :
MB:GA-P55-UD3L
Processor:i5-760 @ 2.8 GHz
RAM: 2*2 GB 1600 MHz
GPU : GTS 450 1 GB GDDR5

that's all , thanks in advance :) .

    it will work great... but that's a rip off on amazon!

    thats a low end 7950 for way too much money.

    TigerDirect has the Sapphire dual fan 7950 for $180 after rebate today

    Also, the XFX cards are great, but make sure you get the double D version (twin fan)

    The XFX black 7950 is normally about $200 after rebate on newegg


    Also, newer games are starting to utilize more RAM. BF4 recomends at least 6 gig. might want to look into dropping another 4gb in ;)
  2. It will work absolutely fine.

    So the card is good and It will work on my case well and the PSU won't have a problem handling this card :D (this is what I understood)
    I am really bad at searching on amazon for the best offer or deal :D
    If you would kindly give me a link with that dual fan system you told me
    that would be greaaaaaaat :D :D .
    ok and as you have started the discussion of obtaining an extra RAM chip.
    the current RAMs I have are these ones : 2gb *2 as I mentioned before :)
    should the new rams work on the same bus frequency (not sure if I am saying it right) but I mean like 1600 Mhz :D .
    and provide me with links for the RAMs also :D
    Thanks in advance :) :)
