As long as your power supply can provide enough juice (and you don't have some low profile case) you can put pretty much whatever video card you want in there, and it becomes a matter of how much money you want to spend. But before we get to that, whats the wattage and make of your PSU?

you may want a new psu if your goal is to upgrade gpus.


on a side note, if anyone doesn't know what pegatron is, its a child company of Asustek(Asus)

$40 for a nice 430w PSU (both of these are solid units, but I personally prefer the corsair)

and $180 for a HD 7850, which is a very nice video card that can max every game out right now at reasonable resolutions.

Total cost of $220 and you've got a good gaming PC. I wouldn't worry about your CPU, it's a sandy bridge i5, which is still plenty fast for modern games.

What's wrong with the Thermaltake? There is no reason why it wouldn't be just as good as the Corsair model, especially when you consider that they both have the exact same OEM, Channel Well. One simply has a Corsair sticker on it and the other has a Thermaltake sticker.

Newegg ships to Canada. That is sure weird.
The only difference between the linked cards is the VRAM size.
