GeForce GTX 480 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 480 is a high-end GFX based on the 40nm Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF100 Core and offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 60 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 700MHz and the memory clock operates at 924MHz.
Its gaming performance is still outstanding. GeForce GTX 480 was the fastest single GPU available until the high-end GPUs of the 500 Series were released.
Most modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution. However, some will require reduced settings to be played optimally.

You'll need at least a 600 watt power supply and a free PCIe slot but other than that, yes you should be able to use this card.

I'm running this card with a core i3 and to my knowledge a core 2 quad running at 3GHz comes really close to an i3, that being said my i3 does bottleneck in some games holding back this card to about 70% load.
seeing as the q9300 comes in at 2.5GHz you might have a pretty bad bottleneck is certain games

If your psu can handle it, than it should work. Your cpu could be a bottleneck though. I would recommend a r7 260x or gtx 750 (ti), needs less power
