  3. You should be fine with that particular PSU and graphics card.

    If there's nothing wrong with your PSU, you might even save your money and get a slightly more powerful card.

  8. yes, the GTS450 is fully back ward compatible infact all PCI-E 2.0 cards are backward compatible, i would reccommend a 6770 for the same price (better performance) instead, and whatever is the cheapest branded (and has good reviews) PSU you can find (that will run your system). eg this 6770:

    and this cx430:

  9. i think 6770 will bottleneck my CPU?
  10. 6770 is 2.1 i read some many forum they said there are problem with 2.1 card with 1.0 MOBO so i will use 2.0 card instead of 2.1

    2.1 cards are fully backward compatible, the 6770 won't bottleneck your CPU much, a bottleneck is just when a card is too good for your CPU.
