Can my computer support this graphic card?

I'm planning to change my GPU from ASUS GTS 450 DDR5 (I know it suck :() to  MSI GTX 950 OC DUAL FAN  is that possible?

 

The Build:

 

Proccesor :  Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz

Motherboard : Asus P8H61-M LE

 

GPU : MSI GTX 950 OC DUAL FAN

HDD : Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Case : Cooler Master Elite 311

Ram : 2x 4GB Kingston

PSU : GX 550W Bronze

 

Is this build okay for the next few years of gaming??

 

Thanks.

that would work but it wont be a good build for gaming for the future, i would look into getting a RX 470 or RX 460 instead and a new CPU seeing as 2xxx CPUs are quite cheap used

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

So the CPU should support that change, but this isn't going to be a pc that will last a few years of gaming. With that setup you can play most of the titles people play the most right now (LOL, WOW, DOTA 2, OVERWATCH, BATTLFIELD, CSGO, etc), but already the CPU and RAM are going to create bottlenecks. So if you do get that gpu, plan on swapping out to higher RAM and a better CPU, then also getting a a new GPU within 1 year in order to not have performance drag.

I would rather agree on what we share, than fight on what we don't. - Myself

Yes, even the RX 460 is better than the 950. If you want to save some money pick up an RX 460 and use the money you saved to upgrade your motherboard and CPU in the near future.

I turned on a PC that I had on a test bench once and it burst into a nice flame.  I think it was the capacitor that blew.  Was a really old graphics card.  Good thing I wasn't leaning over it.
