Hey there, I am planning to upgrade my current rig given below:

Current rig:
Zebronics 450w PSU
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200+
2 GB DDR2 RAM
ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 Motherboard
NVIDIA 8400GS
Zebronics case

I plan to upgrade my GPU,RAM and PSU to the MSI GTX460,4GB DDR2 and 500w PSU.

New rig:
Tagan TG500-U37 500W SMPS
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200+
2 GB DDR2 RAM
ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 Motherboard
MSI GTX 460 1GB GDDR5 OC Cyclone Edition
Zebronics case

Will my new rig be stable? I mean will my CPU bottleneck or my PSU burn up?
Also I have a little more space if 8400gs is in my cabinet. So will gtx 460 fit in my mobo?Its not a very long card right?

Pls give your opinion on this matter. Tell me if I am safe to go with my new rig. :bounce:

Will it bottleneck?
Tagan PSU's are 80% certified and well effective.

IMHO you are upgrading the wrong parts. What i did was upgrade bit by bit. I used the same case and power supply. Got a new MB, cpu and 1 stick of 4mb ram. I stuck with intel hd graphics til i could afford the rest of the upgrades. I was able to play SWTOR at 60 fps (ya everything low).

going from 450 power supply to one with just 50 more seems like a waste. IMO i would keep the psu and case and swap out the MB to one that can at least use ddr3 ram and the CPU you want later ( i looked for upgrade avenue so i got one with xfire/sli support) grab 1 stick of 4mb ram and you can still use that same graphics card.

This will leave you avenues to upgrades in the future.

Not sure what your budget is but ballparking it:
CPU: I3 2120 around 120$
MB: So many options here but less than 100
RAM: 20$

This will start you out for a very decent budget rig.

Everything appears fine. I also suggest a 7750 tho, not much more and it is going to use way less power, it doesn't even need a power cable to connect to it =)
