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 ;)

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 :)  :)
