Can't say unless you give at least your motherboard and power supply recommendations.

Wow how overwhelming the info that you gave :/ 

Tell us about your system such as the specs or at the very least the model if it is a oem like Dell or HP.

lol, I know you probably need specs, I just didn't know what you needed. Would i be able to find the info you need in the device manager? If you can't tell I don't know much about computers, any help is appreciated and will help rid the world of stupidity. :)

No you can't get a GTX460 for that OEM system as it houses only a 220w power supply. The motherboard however can support it.
