Is it possible to upgrade my 9500gt, i would like a nvidia card, im not really good with computers but ive been looking at the gtx 550.

Intel Quad Core Q8200
Asus P5KPL 1600 MB
460W cooler master psu

Im not sure what type of model the psu is but i know the brand is coolermaster. Another worry i have is the new card will fit in the case as it looks pretty big, i have a thermaltake v9

You'll likely have issues with your PSU as it may not have the PCI-express power connector. Also, if you intend on overclocking, you'll definitely want to upgrade the PSU. I can't tell what motherboard you have, but make sure it has a PCI-express x16 slot.
