So I'm looking at the MSI 2GB nVidia GTX 650Ti Boost Edition PCI-E Graphics Card and the ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 Featuring AMD 760 Chipset board. Basically I read that this card needs two slots or something? Not sure if this is right or not but can you please confirm?

Thanks alot for any help :)

the card doesnt "use" two slots, but it take up the space of two slots, because of the cooler. as long as you dont have a pci card in the first pci slot, you will be fine.

As long as your mobo has a PCI-E x16 slot you'll be fine.

Where did you read it needed two slots? That would be inaccurate... Unless you were installed 2 of them ;)  into SLI or something of that nature.

I am using the same motherboard as yours, and i can guarantee you that the card or any single PCI-E x16 GPU will fit into this motherboard.
However, because of the cooler and fan on that GPU, it takes up the space of two slots,thats what it means.
You just need to plug it into a single x16 slot, but however due to its large fans and cooler, the GPU will use up space around that slot. :)
