Hello,
i have Packard Bell iMedia 2142, which has a iga 775 motherboard (has been upgraded with 4gb of ram, 2.66ghz quad core prosscer and windows 7 ulitmate 64 bit and a 9500gt) i would like to know if either the GTX 560ti or GTX 295 will work with my system (btw i already know i need a 16x PCI-e thngy but not sure about power supplies and other ***) oh and i want it for gaming
 
The answer for now is no. The reason is the psu and a sub 3ghz quad is going to struggle any way but not terribly. Upgrade the psu and then you can upgrade your card. You can get a gtx 295 on the cheap but they don't support dx11 and they have their own issues.

$100-150 usd for the GTX295 (eBay)
$200-260 usd for the gtx 560ti (Retail newegg ect)

A couple of things:
would size be an issue? (sorry im new to all this)
And can you reccomend a new PCU ( make sure the PCU and the GPU dosent cost more than £250)
and thanks again!
