That is a pretty good deal. With shipping, at least when I added it, was $6.87 making the total $116.86 after rebate.

I would go for this deal. It's an Asus GTX460 that is free shipping and $114.99 after rebate. It will outperform the 450 a good bit. It also comes with a coupon for a free H.A.W.X 2 game.

Yeah, well I just had a Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz and a GTX 260 Core 216 running on a 6 year old Antec True Power 2.0 480W (18A on the 12V) power supply. But I just replaced that PSU with a Corsair TX650 last night. Why? Because although it "works" I didn't want the whole thing melting down and destroying everything. Pushing a poor quality, or old power supply too hard could damage more than just the power supply.

I just don't want your PSU to fry your hole PC. Does he have the same PSU as yours? If it is a pre-assembled PC from a store can you at list give us a link to see if the PSu is ok?

As a recommendation for that price range as i said above would be the gtx460.

According to their customization they have that 460w PSU with 6 core CPU and up to 5870. It should work with a gtx460. But i still recommend a new PSU. For the reasons @jerreece and i posted above.

It doesn't say anything about the PSU except the watts. Hope i did not missed anything.

I have a close family member that was a production manger @ Dell(has since moved up in the ranks). I have been on the assembly floor and talked to the floor engineers and I am some what familiar with their build policy. Unless otherwise specified, they use reference parts that will meet the expectations of the PC in it's original build. They do not care or plan for when and if you add components down the road. Unless you can give a name and model # for the PSU, I'd recommend getting a new one. It's the wise "no smoke" thing to do. :)
