Compatible graphics card?

Hi,
Complete and total noob with hardware but I want a decent gaming computer and I found these.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they would work together? Don't want to buy them and find out they don't.

Thanks so much, Sorry for the stupid question!

    They are going to work because the GTX 660 requires a PCI Express 3.0 x16 and your motherboard has one of those. But there is one other thing you need, you are going to need a new PSU ( Power Supply), your PSU is only 300 watts, the GTX 660 requires 500 watts. I suggest the Corsair CX500. Other than the PSU you should be fine.

    Thanks for the reply. Did some searching and found a much better computer for a close enough price (which has 750w PSU).

    But brilliant answer, thank you. It led me to searching and probably would have just bought this computer without knowing if it weren't for you! :)
