Default Graphics card, help.

So i'm upgrading my graphics card soon, as i have a GT430 and it's just not good enough. I was going to buy the GTX 460 Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 OC 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card [GV-N460OC-1GI ] i'm just wondering if it's compatible with my computer thanks for any help you can provide.

My specs
Motherboard - GA-880GM-UD2H
Proccessor - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3200 Mhz 6 core's
4GB RAM
Windows home Premium 64bit
500w power supply
If i have left anything please let me know and i will update, thanks.

what model is your power supply?
it's compatible as long as your power supply is strong enough.

It will work but there is a Sale on (that Site) and a more powerful Card (470) for only several Pounds more: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...14&subcat=1810 it is best to wait as long as you can stand it since with new Cards coming out soon the prices drop quickly.
