Your PSU will power those 2 GPUs with no problem.

But, your CPU might bottleneck the 560. Unless you OC or buying higher end CPU, the 550 Ti is a good choice.

No way, for a 450 watt minimum gpu, using a 450 watt psu is bad. Get a CX500 or CX600, they are cheap but really good for price PSU's.

Also, i would recommend getting another mobo, that one is outdated and i dont think it will support the gtx 560. Ye it has a pci express x16 slot, but , i think that mobo supporst PCI Express 1.1 and not 2.0.

Yeah i read it, your board will support any GPU with PCI x16 2.0 version,

But you need min 600 Watt PSU for a 560Ti and min 500 Watt PSU for 560 or 550 Ti
Sincee 560Ti min required power is 500 Watts and 560 and 550 Ti require 450 Watts.

Corsairs CX series are pretty good PSU's. They are, the value for money kind of PSUs. Good Power. Great organized cables, so you wont be fumbling with wires, and Cheap. There is minor difference of price in CX500 and CX600,

So if I were you, I would go for CX600. In fact, i recently bought GTX 560 with a CX600.

If you are looking to OC your card or add cooler fans and accesories, I would advise going for AX series,
Antec's PSU's are pretty awesome too. But they are bit costly.
Dont bother with Cooler Masters. They look cool, but i wont recommend them.

I would also go on and advise you to splurge a little on your RAM. Those are dated. get something with 1333 mhz speed. RAM's are pretty cheap these days. Transcend and Corsair offers 4gb sticks at meagre 20-25$. They are good. Actually great for average casual gamers.

Are you from india? I am from india, and the one's i mentioned, flipkart is giving them away at 1200 to 1300 Rs. Ah, btw... Your board cant support DDR3 ram. hmmm Get a new mobo man, i know cash is hard to come by. Even i want a new mobo and a new cabinet but have no case and am suffering from high temps coz of small case, but no cash :( 

But yeah you better get a new mobo that supports atleast a dd3 ram. Nowadays DDR3 are cheap and good. Also its good if you are planning some upgrades on future. I dont think DDr2 is a good support for a gTX 560. Get a good mobo, Intel Mobo's are cheap. If you are from india try searching flipkart. They have awesome deals and free delivery anywhere in india.
