-bump- The graphics card wasn't compatible, I found it wasnt a pci-e, anyone know of any good deals budget exactly £54 ? Im thinking PNY GT 430 1GB DDR3 DVI HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card

Would that be compatible with Asus M4A78LT-M LE AMD 760G Socket AM3 DVI VGA Out 8 Channel Audio mATX
and
Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95w 1.5MB L2 Processor
?
Thanks.
edit:
Ive already bought a 430 watt power supply but I just used a different watt calculator and due to the:
AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95w 1.5MB L2 Processor
which in the specification says it has triple core and if I put in the calculator dual-core it makes the calculator go up to about 550 to 600watts...
so, would this be true and am I truly fu*ked or am I just confused?

LOL

Athlons dont consume that much power

Did you enter like SLI GTX 460s or something?

Although your system doesn't need much power. I would recommend buying a bigger PSU such as the one you said u would. Trust me, PSU's are very important! So make sure you get a good quality one also, such as the one you mentioned or an antec or similar.
