Nothing wrong with the GPU or the PSU however your motherboard uses socket 775 while any new Intel CPU (i3,i5,i7) use socket 1155(and 1156 on older versions of i5 and i7).
You will have to upgrade your motherboard to at least something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
However that motherboard is for budget builds so you cannot overclock nor use crossfire/sli. You will also have to buy DDR3 memory for your new motherboard

Ah i understand, thanks for the speedy reply ! I can live with just a new GPU and PSU for now :)
