You should upgrade your psu if you would like to upgrade your gpu Thanks swifty_morgan a c 91 U Graphics card a b Î Nvidia July 20, 2012 9:49:56 AM you should pull the side and measure how big a card you can put in and whether or not you can put a single slot card or is there enough room for a double slot wide card. i wouldn't waste my time on a 260. you can get something that's faster and uses less power and runs cooler.
