Hello people at Tom's Hardware!

I have an old computer running on Intel Core 2 Dual cpu and it has an PCIe where I have decided to put a GTX 550 Ti for my gaming needs!

I also have a second old computer with a Intel Pentium D dual core cpu which I have decided to put an Nvidia GT 640 on it in order to play LAN but I have no idea if the port is a PCIe because it does not have a clip on the end. The other computer has a little clip on one end to keep the card on position like all the motherboards i know of.

Please keep in mind that both PSUs are powerful enough. I will buy a 500W (for GTX) with the cards when I order them and transfer the 325W (for GT) from the Intel Core 2 to the Pentium PC!

Thanks in advance! Any other recommendation will be apprutiated!

Yes, it's PCIE GFX. Your mobo is MS7254 you can google it, and see the specs here:

Thank you everyone for the answers! I will go with CX 500 non-modular Corsair PSU and Nvidia cards and try not to bottleneck a lot! I didn't know that was a motherboard code number! So now I know that a PCIe port can be physically different than the ones ASUS and Gigabyte provide! :)  :)  THANK YOU!

According to the MB specs (MS 7254 ver 2.1), that is a PCIe x16 slot that is selected. The small one is a PCIe x1 and the other two are PCI slots.

The 550 Ti will most likely work since all the newer graphics cards are supposed to be backwards compatible.

I would update all the MB drivers.

Take a look near the slot (near the capacitor below the slot), it says "PCIE16X1" So, it is a PCI Express 16X.
