If you love gaming, you should sell the GX 280 and get something else. The small form factor cases heat up too much during gaming and they have limited upgrade options especially the old GX 280 with the Pentium 4. There is really no upgrade path for the processor and with only a 160 watt power supply, there is no option here either for a video card.
The 5450 is a better card and much newer than the 8400.
Quite Certain that the 8400 is not applicable to Crysis since its dirt slow.
The 5450 is not an ULTRA card either but it at least runs in Low Settings at 1024 x 768
Minimum System Requirements:
OS - Windows XP or Windows Vista
Processor - 2.8GHz or faster (XP); 3.2GHz or faster * (Vista)

* Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz (3.2GHz for Vista) or faster, Intel Core 2GHz (2.2GHz for Vista) or faster, and other similar CPUs.

Description: DELL - NVIDIA QUADRO FX 570 will work in a GX280 Tower HOWEVER you have to upgrade the power supply.
Only the 2nd Generation GX280 Tower will work.
Skydive Wont Work easily You have to hack the case to get a regular power supply to work.
The Skydive case only has 250W power supply.
2ND Gen Full Tower GX280 which is the same as GX620 Tower will work.
If its a GX620 and NOT a GX280 it will have a 305W power supply.
