Upgrading from geforce 8400gs to gtx 550

My current pc build:
Pentium(R)Dual core E5300@2.6GHZ OC 3.0ghz
300W powersupply
4gb OCZ DDR2 ram
geforce 8400gs
motherboard:msi G31TM-P35

Will my current cpu bottleneck gtx 550?

    might wanna change ur psu(ignore tis if you upgrade [you shld haf] )
  4. I would agree with xHackell in that you would need a new PSU to get a card like that. I would recommend the Radeon 6770 over the GTX550Ti, and I would pick the GTX460 over the Radeon 6770.

    Either way, none of these cards will be able to run on a 300W PSU of any type.
