Is my "gaming setup" okay?

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 dual core at 2.66 ghz. 2 pci conventional, 1 pci-e x 1, and 1 pci-e 2.0 x16, 4 GB RAM, i'm using 4GB VRAM, and im using win 8 pro 64 bit. I am currently using an MSI Nvidia GT 520 Fermi, and i'm going to buy either an EVGA gtx 650 ti, or super-clocked but i also don't know which is better. If I were to get it would it let me play games like skyrim, crysis, and AC3 on MAX settings at a steady 60 fps at a 1600x900 resolution? :bounce:

I just need to know if ill be able to play or not, and if possible, i need to find out which cpu to get for my dell motherboard.
I have the full tower dell optiplez 755 and when i bought it the salesman said it was socket LGA155 but it's not -_-.
I'm also using the stock Power supply which i think is 350 Watts.. do i really HAVE to upgrade it to 400-450 for my new GPU? :cry:

Heres my PC manual:

And the GPU's:
GTX 650 Ti

GTX 650 Superclocked

I'm also thinking about upgrading to the max 8GB RAM with 4GB VRAM

  1. so what are you upgrading? Mobo and cpu or just gpu?
    yes, you should buy a new psu, for peace of mind, because you don't know how reliable the one inside the computer is.

  2. Just a note, the 650Ti will not max out your games even at 1600x900. The 7850 will manage, though maybe around 50fps rather than 60
  3. So this mobo will fit inside my case?
  4. buying nvidia 660 ti or 660 or 650 ti is best or going for radeon 7870 ghz or 7770 is best
  5. 7870 is best. No need for the ghz edition, buy the cheapest card you can get and overclock.
