im planning on slamming my rig with a 7850 videocard, my only concern is that,will my pc be able to work without any compatiblity problems?

my current spec is;
athlon II 240 oc'd to 3ghz
generic 500 wat power supply
mobo-M2N68-AM PLUS asus
a c 290 U Graphics card

I would not be so sure about that power supply, I'd get something more decent, like corsair cx 500. About everything else, it will work without any problems.

thanks sir..also adding that my current monitor ;
Display Type LCD monitor / TFT active matrix
Diagonal Size 16"
Panel Type TN
Aspect Ratio Widescreen - 16:9
Native Resolution 1366 x 768 at 60 Hz

again would it still be able to work properly with my current monitor?

Though your mobo only has pci-e 16x, pci-e 2.0 and pci-e 3.0 cards are all backwards compatible.

Should be a substantial upgrade.

Just a sidenote: not sure if you have but make sure your case has sufficient space for a modern graphics card and a non generic psu. (you may have checked. just thought i'd add it in)

Straightforward: Don't do it.

Not-straightforward: The computer is pretty slow as it is, and I wouldnt trust the new card on that power supply.

As already stated it will work fine with the upgraded power supply but your CPU will seriously hold it back especially at that resolution. Unless you plan on upgrading the CPU I suggest you look at a 6850 not a 7850.
