Hey guys, I was thinking of upgrading my GTX 550Ti to a GTX 560Ti. But I'm not sure if my PSU/MoBo/ will support it?

This is the one I'm looking at:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

I'll list my specs here:

Display - ViewSonic VA2431 23'6''
Mainboard - Intel DH61CR
Chipset - Intel H61
Processor - Intel Core i5 2500 @ 3300 MHz (3700 MHz in Turbo Mode)
Physical Memory - 8192MB (2 x 4096 DDR3-SDRAM)
Current Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
HDD - Seagate ST31000524AS 1TB
CD-Rom Drive - DTSOFT Virtual CdRom Device
DVD-Rom Drive - Toshiba-Samsung CDDVDW SH-222AB
Operating System - Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Power Supply - CHIEFTEC GPA-500S8 500W

Here is some more info about the PSU:

AC-Input: 230V/4.0A
Frequency: 47MHz-63Mhz

If anymore info is needed on anything, I'll do my best to answer. If needed I'll even take pictures of my PSU/CPU/Mobo or anything, because I really need everything to be correct :D !

Thanks in advance!

think you might be pushing it as that psu only has 26 amps on the +12v rail if it were to go wrong it could take out entire system you would be better off buying a branded psu like ocz , xfx ,antec as you should never cheap out on your psu ! :)
