Yup it'll work. My old PC runs on that spec.

Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33Ghz
Intel DG33FB Classic
8GB (2GBx4) RAM
ZOTAC GTX550Ti 1GB DDR5

Everything runs well. Almost every game runs on high (Not ultra/max)

Total System Rating - 5.8
Graphic Rating - 7.3
Gaming Graphic Rating - 7.3

No one really cares about the Windows Experience Index. It doesn't grade well. Use a benchmarking software like 3DMark 11 to judge computer performance.

What is the power supply? It should be fine with the Core2Duo, but most likely not with your power supply.

That's a pretty slow Core2Duo. And what power supply are you running?

Its not really the watts that counts, its the quality. If you had a good 450W PSU, you would be able to run a 550Ti no problem.

Good brands are Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, and PC Power & Cooling.

That being said, I would recommend the 7770 over the 550Ti. The 550Ti is quite old, uses alot of power, and the 7770 is just flat out faster.

Its the benchmarks that matter, and the 7770 is just flat out faster.

Mainly the 7770. The 6850 is better, but more expensive. You need a better power supply for sure though.

That I dont know. I would personally get a new one to be safe. Unless it has good 12V amperage.
