Yes it will work with your cpu.
A better question is, will it work with your motherboard and power supply?
And will it fit in your case?

More information please.....

actually that cpu would bottleneck the graphics card. look for something under 150usd, radeon 7790 or gtx 650 ti.

I have a Radeon HD 5450 running in my comptuter now so i think radeon 7850 will fit in the case since they use both the same entrances???

I cant find the number of watts my computer is using i dont know where to look but here is the info i found


AC Input:230 VAC 10A 50-60Hz Model 500U Colorsit

DC Max Output +3.3V +5V +12V -5V -12V +5VSB
28A 35A 25A 0.5A 0.8A 2.5A
500W

(500W stands for 500wats?)
The graphic card wants to use 130 watts apparently.

Radeon HD 7850 is an overkill for your current processor. HD7850 badly get bottlenecked by your super old AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU. For you to play latest games I recommend you to upgrade the system. If that's not possible then settle with an HD7770 that should reduce the GPU power wastage caused by CPU bottlenecking.

One thing you should remember is that when your CPU is bottlenecked in games no matter what GPU you are using FPS simply wont increase. That is both HD7850 and HD7990 would perform just the same !! :ouch:

What if I upgrade my graphics card now and then i will proceed to buy a new motherboard/cpu in a short time soon?
Besides I am not planing to play any games with high graphic requirements I am planning to continue playing the games i am playing right now
(they work for me but i need to play them at low resolutions) If I play the games that my CPU can handle with the addition of this new graphic card will my computer face problems? Or will it only face problem when I am trying to run games that my CPU cant handle even if my new graphic card can?

If that's the case then nothing wrong in temporarily using the new GPU with your old machine. But before upgrading make sure your power supply is a capable one

My Power supply can supply 500wats i think, the new graphic card will only use 130 (not sure about my other computer components I am not really sure whats determining if the power supply is capable, anyway thanks for all the answer's.

If your power supply is 500W and have 1 x 6-pin PCI-E power connector from the PSU then you are good to go
