    Almost any GPU will fit in there, that said I wouldn't overdo it. A GTX 960 would likely be a good match for that system, also due to the 460w PSU. Now that PC did come originally with a GTX 260 so it should have the connections and power you would need for a GTX 960.

    Thank You so much and would it be hard for me to install myself or are there plenty of videos out there for me :D

    Its pretty simple, remove the 2 power cables going to the card, then the 2 screws holding it in. Reach into the case and push down the little tab that is at the back of the slot it is in and then pull the card straight out. New one goes in the place of the old one and should use the same plugs.

    Before doing this you should go in windows and uninstall all display drivers you had. use DDU:

    To make sure they are all gone. Then shut down the PC and do the swap.
