The answer for now is no. The reason is the psu and a sub 3ghz quad is going to struggle any way but not terribly. Upgrade the psu and then you can upgrade your card. You can get a gtx 295 on the cheap but they don't support dx11 and they have their own issues.

$100-150 usd for the GTX295 (eBay)
$200-260 usd for the gtx 560ti (Retail newegg ect)

Thanks :D 
A couple of things:
would size be an issue? (sorry im new to all this)
And can you reccomend a new PCU ( make sure the PCU and the GPU dosent cost more than £250)
and thanks again!

The GTX295 doesn't support DX11 is hot, bulky and a power guzzler! But i dont know why.... i love the card. Its still very good for games.

How much is the Q9550 in pounds now?

Bout £200, would the GTX 295 be able to play bf 3?

If the Q9550 is 200 pounds then i think it would be very hard to settle for a new PSU for 50 pounds. I think you would have to get a lower quad.
