Hello. I have an i3 2120 3.30 GHz, and a GeForce GTX 550Ti. I am planning to upgrade the GPU, but will that CPU be enough? Thank you!

What is your planned gpu upgrade?
What is your current power supply? Brand and model? How many amps on the 12V rails?
i3 is still ok for now. They still capable of delivering performance.

Im planning to buy a Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost, the power supply is not top notch, it has 500W. Thanks for your answer!

Model is Tacens Radix V-550, it has two 12v trais, 12V1 and 12V2, both working at 20A. -12 at 0.5A.

THe 650Ti boost is doable on your current power supply but i would recommend at some point upgrade it to a better quality.
Stick to brands such as: Antec, Corsair(AX,HX or TX series only), Seasonic or XFX
