HI ALL
I HAVE- 2GB DDR2 RAM
INTEL CORE2DUO 2.8 GHZ PROCESSOR
320 GB HDD
19" SAMSUNG LCD MONITOR
PRESENT GFX CARD - 9400 GT NVIDIA

I USE MY COMPUTER FOR ONLINE FPS GAMING LIKE COD MW2.....RECENTLY WHEN I INSTALLED CRYSIS2 IT SAID "UNSUPPORTED GRAPHICS CARD" AND I GET LAGGY GAMEPLAY IN CRYSIS WITH LOW FPS OF 9-11 !!!

I AM PLANNING TO BUY NEW GFX CARD SOON..EITHER NVIDIA GTX460 OR NVIDIA GTS450......I WANNA ASK WHETHER MY COMPUTER SPECIFICATIONS WILL B COMPATIBLE WITH THESE NEW GPUs ?
CAN I GO AHEAD AND UPGRADE MY GPU SAFELY WITHOUT ANY HARDWARE ERROR ?

THANK U ..WAITING FOR KIND REPLIES

Their should be a wattage somewhere.We need that and how many amps are on the 12/v rail(s).

The GTX460 is a very good card and they are very cheap now.Be sure to get a 2.0 version and not a 2.1 to avoid complications with your older mobo.Also the new GPU would benift from a O.C. of your CPU.

is this it?

if you so then you have a 250w which greatly limits your upgrade options. something like the ATI 4650 would be your best bet without a PSU upgrade. otherwise look for a 500w PSU from antec, ocz, or corsair.

Upgrade your PSU.

Both the GTS450 and GTX460 will require you to upgrade your PSU.They require much more power than 250watts.

Antec 550watt $65 + $2 shipping

MSI Hawk GTX4601G $200 = $180 after MIR + Free Shipping

Total is $265 before rebates.

Although your resoultion doesn't require the 1G version of the GTX460 i would reccomend getting it twards futures upgrades.

completely incorrect. PSU like corsair and seasonic may be 20-30% higher in the states & western Europe then other solid brands like OCZ, in other parts of the world they will go for 2-3x as much.
