But i doubt we will run into that with your system. but providing the info for others in case they see this and they find out their pci express is a first generation. if you can give us a rough budget of the max cash you canpay to get the new psu and gpu we may be able to get you the best bang for your buck.

Sorry to say that the HD6450 is far from a gaming card and that it is better suited to general computer use such as web browsing, school or office work or in a media centre, this is down to the cards low spec such as being only 32 or 64-bit interface, a 256-bit card would suit your needs better but aim for 192-bit as a minimum, an example card http://us.ncix.com/p...anufacture=eVGA note that this card requires two available 6-pin PCI-E power dongles from the PSU.
Some additional information for you, you must ensure that you have a PSU (power supply unit) that is capable of providing adequate clean and stable power and any supplemental power cable that some add on video cards require, there are other things that need to be considered when upgrading hardware such as the room available in the case and the size and shape of the PSU in some instances, before making any purchase I suggest that you check the available room inside your case for an add on video card and measure the dimensions of the PSU so you can do a comparison with any potential purchase, common PSU dimensions are 5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 5.5"(L)
