WILL MY CPU SUPPORT MY NEW GPU ?

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

More about will support
  1. i am not sure...it says ac 230 v on the back of my case..its an i ball entizer designer case without SMPS
  2. 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.
  3. My system is IBALL ENTIZER WITHOUT SMPS and on the back it says 10A230V...ANY USE ? i am trying to find the wattage..thx and keep replying plz
  4. 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.
  5. omg..yes thats my system...... ok so how much wattage do these new gpu demand ?
  6. Upgrade your PSU.

    Both the GTS450 and GTX460 will require you to upgrade your PSU.They require much more power than 250watts.
  7. Antec 550watt $65 + $2 shipping

    MSI Hawk GTX4601G $200 = $180 after MIR + Free Shipping
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127518

    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.
  8. lol then i am fucked !!! :P
    BUT BIG THANX TO CT1615 AND PURPLE STANK FOR HELPING ME OUT ..U GUYS ROCK !!
    and sorry for writing in caps and being a noob :)
  9. What? Do i think he lives in the USA? It's possible but prices are within the same general area everywhere.
  10. Well you were already thinking of getting the GTS450 or the GTX460.Whats your budget?
    Maybe we can work it out with you.
