NO NO NO NO
Never risk lots of $$$$ with low end PSU
however the rest of the system can handle it

Edit : from that CPUz link your ram is under clocked it is DDR800 running @ DDR750

Your CPU can handle any card out right now. Your Power Supply won't handle hardly anything. I am assuming that the power supply came with your case. Get a new one. Make sure you have dual +12 rails and probably at least 600w. And 24a on the 12v rails.

Dual rails? No way man. Get dual rails if you absolutely have to. Get something with a SINGLE rail, you will get "more" out of your power supply that way.

I have no idea what your budget is but here's an idea.

PC Power and Cooling 610

49 amps on a single rail

I haven't heard anything good about the power supply...and not just from Newegg. Silverstone lost some of my respect for this one.

Saxahonker and kemo6600 are both right. A single rail with very high amps will work better. I was talking on the phone giving PSU advice to someone else and just typed what I was saying to the guy on the phone. Sorry, LOL
