Well I don't really want to replace my CPU. It could be replaced the case and supply power and add a new card well a budget could be for buying these things I can save money
a video card of medium profile
a case good with nice air conditioner
and a good certified like that one I buy but obviously with more available watts 400 or up

6450 is the best from the listed cards. You know that you need low profile card, right?
And you do not need to upgrade the power supply.

Video card manufacturers are just playing safe for extreme cases like a 8 core CPU + several hard disks.
With quad core and a single hdd 6450 will work fine on 275W psu.


Thanks a lot =) I didn´t know it ahm one last question
When I went to find information about what was best for my motherboard intel they told me nvidia )= I really prefer amd because of the power consumption low an the better performance but will it be good for my motherboard= placa madre(spanish)

The motherboard has a 16x PCI E slot, so theoretically all cards should work. Regardless if AMD or Nvidia.
There is some chance of incompatibility, but I think it is small, and with older products you can not avoid it 100%.

6450 is two times faster than 5450 (if both are DDR3). DDR5 variants of 6450 exist, but these cards are getting older so they are not easy to find.

I'm not sure what your budget is but you might want to consider the GTX 750 TI, its a very powerful card for the amount of power it uses.

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...

It uses 60w of power and min PSU req is only 300w vs 400w from the 6450. The GTX 750 Ti is around $150 but it is WAY faster than the 6450 and uses less power.

Two low profile GTX 750 Ti's :

Would you recommend it to me to buy that product wouldn´t it cause problems?
I know that 6450 consumes about 19 watts and DDR5 consumes 30 watts
I am seeing that gtx 750 low profile consumes around 55 watts

The budget is not a problem I just want that it works really well withouy causing any trouble thanks for your answer

If you plan to play relatively new games GTX 750 cards are a good idea and probably will work but low profile versions are not yet available. The listings above are not low profile.

Why are you looking at such low-end cards? The Core 2 Quad might be old and presents some bottleneck potential but that doesn't mean it's a bad CPU; it can still go head to head with last-gen i3 and some i5. If you can, look to get a GTX 750 or something.

The PSU is terrible but your biggest problem is the case. I don't think the PSU in that case is even ATX-format; if you want to replace things down the road you'll need to get rid of the case. The slimline form factor basically prevents you from getting any really nice cards, and the C2Q is stretching the capabilities of that crap PSU.

It really doesn't work to use 6450 my power supplies doesn´t work, I noticed it really consumes around 75 w and I forget to put that I used two monitors.
Well anyway i would be buying a better case and power supply
