The CPU shouldn't be any problem with the graphics card, but you need to make sure your motherboard has a PCI-E x16 slot that you can insert the GTX650 into. Most motherboards that support that CPU have a PCI-E slot, but you should check before buying the card.

yes. your case might be an issue if standard or slim/low profile. then you would need a low profile type gtx card.

it s a very good idea , what is your mainboard ?
if your pc is a portable/laptop then you should check carefully and select compatible card : if your pci-e is MXM A or B
B handles all kind of cards , while A are smaller at power limited to 35 watt .
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_PCI_Express_Module
on ebay there are some MXM A at very good price . i updated my touchsmart hp cpu and vga for 300 euro and it is a big change for this 3 years old TV-email Pc
with few new heatsinks it became more silent

How do i check whether i have PCI-E x16 on my pc?
usually near pciex slot it labelled or just check the manual, its there
maybe you just think it would bottle neck the performance?

Read your manual if you are unsure... Or Google. Seriously... Give a man a fish or teach a man to fish...

Does your BIOS give you the option to boot from the PCI-e slot? If not then you don't have 1 but I think yours does. Your CPU is still very viable. Why not go with a Radeon R9 280X or a 2GB GTX 760?

How does the PCI-E x16 look like?
Your question is so basic I don't have confidence that you have the technical knowledge to do the upgrade without damaging your system.

How does the PCI-E x16 look like?
im 16, i don have that much money
You are 16, you are in the technology generation. Simply typing "PCI x16" into google images would have showed you what it looks like.

This is a hardware forum, we are here to help, but I'm not going to spoon feed you.

C'mon, guys and gals. Let's not troll on his thread. He's just learning about computers. Do you people remember the seemingly asinine questions YOU asked when you were just starting out?

I agree. I learnt to build computers when I was 12 years old in the 56k dialup modem days.

I used to read computer books and I subscribed to many PC enthusiast magazines to keep on top of the changes. By the time I was ready to build I knew the fundamentals.

The OP hasn't come back, its been 3 months. He is gone.
