Graphic card

currently i have a p5k se motherboard. a q6600 @ 2.4ghz(at stock). 6gb 667 mhz ram, a spire 650 watt, and a 512mb 8600 gt. I am planning of buying a 22 inch or 24 inch 3d ready monitor and a gtx 285,
1 question. as my motherboard is a bit old can it run a gtx 285 or it doesn't matter?
2 question. is the gtx 285 enough to play on a 24 inch 3d monitor or on a 22 inch 3d monitor?
3 question. I am not sure if I have to change the psu then, my psu have 2 6 pin connector, but have only 2 rails at 18 amps eacha nd max of 30 amps, is it enough ?
thanks in advance

  1. A GTX 285 will run fine on your mobo, but considering your CPU and monitor size planned I'd go with a GTX 275 or HD 4890. Definitely all you would need.

    as it is a 3d monitor doesn't it require a better card then a normal monitor?
  3. and as it is a nvidia 3d system I am quit sure it allow only nvidia cards?
  4. PSU isn't good. Replace it with a decent one like a vx550.
  5. yes I tought so that psu wasn't good, so as it is a 3d monitor not normal one does it need a better graphic card than a normal monitor
