I have an Alienware X51 R2 with a 0PGRP5 motherboard. I currently have an Intel Core i3-4130 @ 3.4 GHz and a GeForce GTX 645. I am looking to upgrade my CPU & GPU this holiday. What CPU's and GPU's are compatible with my system?

Thanks

Would I have to upgrade the PSU from the 240w for any of these?

For the CPU? No.

For the GPU? No only for the GTX 750 ti. The others require the 330w PSU.
