It will depend on your power supply.

See bottom of the page GeForce GTX 560 Specifications

My PSU is 450W, I am thinking of upgrading it to 550w.

No need for two posts on the same subject: Duplicate.

Upgrading your PSU to 550W will be fine but make sure that the PSU you choose has two 6 pin PCI-E connectors for the GTX 560,If I were you I would go for the Ti version,an overall better GPU.

Yes,the duplicate, is actually in the wrong place and had insufficent information. It can be deleted if needs be.

I am planning on getting the GTX 560 Ti and probably a 650W Cooler Master GX.

PSU http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies/650W+or+less/650W+Cooler+Master+GX+80PLUS+Bronze+Power+Supply+?productId=47892

is this doable with the hardware I already have?

Yes it is "Doable",I cannot find out much about your Mobo except that it is quite old, but you should be fine.
