Are these components compatible with this GPU?

Hello, im upgrading my pc and would like to know if these components go together. I am pretty sure they do go together, but just want to ask over because this is a lot of money for me.

Here are the parts:

Motherboard: https://www.amazon.com/ThinkCentre-Desktop-Motherboard-...
PSU: http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/cx-series-cx450-450-watt-8...
Case: https://arvutitark.ee/est/tootekataloog/Arvutikomponend...
RAM: 8GBs of ddr3
GPU(2 options): https://www.zotac.com/us/product/graphics_card/zotac-ge... OR https://arvutitark.ee/est/tootekataloog/Arvutikomponend...
Storage: 500gb
CPU: https://ark.intel.com/products/52209/Intel-Core-i5-2500...

Some guy said that the picked GPUs might throttle my CPU. If someone can please explain it to me then please, because i don´t really understand what he mean´t.

All advice is welcomed!

Thank you for your help!

  1. links to GPU is just the main page of website,

    The CPU is outdated for sure. How much are you paying for it?

    If you want to buy anything this generation, get a "k" cpu and overclock because it will be bottle neck in modern gaming.
    Unless you are playing older games, the cpu is ok as for the gpu anything 750 ti - 950 - 1050 ti would do the trick.
    Basically the computer will work and you can game at medium graphics and get generally 50-60 fps. But in modern gaming, you will suffer stuttering and frame drops.
  2. What is your budget? Also where are you located? Ill try and build a decent rig for you

    Sorry, didn´t notice that the GPU websites were the main page. They are supposed to be zotac gtx 1050 ti and MSI VGA PCIE16 RX 560 4GB GDDR5. But 950 is also a good idea. I have the CPU already, i have it on my old computer like some other parts. The parts i really need to upgrade are the case, PSU and GPU. And the game i want to play the most is Rust, so i think it should be OK with this CPU and don´t need to upgrade that.

    Well, i already have the RAM, storage, motherboard, CPU and the cooler for it. Also have the PSU, GPU and case, but these are the things i want to upgrade the most. I have very small case and PSU and i dont want to do anything with Low Profile GPUs anymore. That´s why i want to upgrade The CASE, GPU and PSU. The budget is around 200 or 250 euros for these items.
    Right now i´m using Lenovo thinkcentre m91p desktop with upgraded GPU (GT 730 LP 1GB) and upgraded 4gb ram.
    i´m from Estonia and the main website i watch for PC parts is Arvutitark.ee

    Thank you!
