Graphics Upgrade

Sorry this has probably been on 100 + posts, but search didn't find my system.  

I am looking for advise on upgrading my systems graphics card; Dell XPS7100  AMD Phenom II x6  1035t ;  2.6 ghz ; 6GB of RAM  64 git windows 7.  Currently for gaming have a HD 5460 card would like to upgrade to a GTX960.  Can my motherboard handle this without issues (ie BIOS changes etc) and the heat if I toss in a 500W power supply to run it?     I think the CPU can handle it for the most part or am i missing something?

Would appreciate all of your advise. Thanks.

RE: Graphics Upgrade

You will need a corsair CS750M power supply and a specific GTX 960.

The various models seem to be VERY VERY VERY Picky about which ones work or not.

Thats why I wanted to nail that down.

In older dells like Precision T3400 BIOS A09  I've used an EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 2GB GDDR5 128bit,  02G-P4-2966-KR
