Default Graphics Card - GTX 260

So, recently i've been wanting a new graphics card, as currently i'm on an 'amazing' ati radeon x600 =D
I've been looking at the GTX 260, however, after probably more than 40 hours of researching, I can't seem to find anything, so I figured i'd come here and beg, i mean ask, the proffesionals =D

Here's the rest of my pc's stuff:

I think it might be partially normal bought and partially custom built though :/

Hp XW6200 Workstation.

CPU - Dual Xeon 3.6 Ghz with hyper-threading.
RAM - Currently 2 GB, going to get 4GB Corsair "Vengeance" soon though.
HDD - I believe is a 500GB SATA ll Storage hard drive, I may be mistaken however.
Graphics Card - ATI Radeon X600 128 MB dedicated (I think)
Motherboard - I THINK it's a Dual 64-bit Xeon Motherboard, althought don't quote me back on that.
500 Watt Power Supply, If you want, I can get a ton more detail of the power supply.

Okie dokie, thanks =]

if your asking if it will work, I believe it will fit, but you may need to upgrade your power supply. the GTX260 needs two 6-pin power connections.

It's funny a thread like this came up.

I managed to buy an ATI 5770 on ebay for 75 new for my brothers PC. It's apparently on par with the GTX 260.
DX11 support as well.

For an extra 20 quid thereabouts, I could have gotten the GTX 260 216 core edition which is better than the older 192 core version, but it'll suit him fine
