Re: Compatibility Question
I would beef up the graphics a little. The 450 is a decent card, but underpowered. My cousin's husband is running a 4850 and gets great frames on an original Phenom quad, so going with a 5770 or better, or a 460, would set you up sweet.
Don't shop blind on cards, though. Check reviews and warranties before you decide on one. EVGA is only doing a two year warranty on most of their new cards.
Oh, and redfish is right... look for combos where you can.
