Hello.
Can my PC handle a new graphic card which I will buy (Asus GeForce GTX560 Ti, 2 GB, PCI-E (ENGTX560 TI DC2/2GD5))?
Well, I think my PSU cannot handle it so, I'm posting here. Well, my PSU is: Spire SP-ATX-420W TN-PFC | www.spirepower.com.

If you need my old graphic card information, here it is: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT.

Thanks in advance! And tell me if you need more information.

Ya might wanna keep that 9400GT (adds 87 watts) for PhysX though in which case Id get something a bit bigger. A typical system w/ a 560 wants 500 watts

So ya just might make it with the 550, though I'd want a 650.

Corsair TX650 V2 and XFX Core Edition 650 are both $80

Pentium might bottleneck the 560, be carefull.

Is it a 775 CPU or a 1155 CPU?
