I am thinking upgrading and getting new video card but the question is will it work at full speed and etc with my motherboard ?

here are my PC specs.

MoBo = ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775
CPU = Q6600
4GB ram
750watt PSU
ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB vRam

I am thinking on getting this video card.
EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST

Hello and welcome. Yes, it will work fine on your board. However, I don't think you will see a huge difference. The card you have is pretty good match for your system, and although the new card will show improvement, its not going to be earth shattering. Your system is starting to show its age, and if you are not getting enough performance, the first thing is to overclock it to 3ghz, if you have not done that already, as that is kind if what that combo of CPU and motherboard were meant for.
I am not sure I would spend money on a new video card, in my opinion, I would be putting money toward a new motherboard/CPU platform first.

Thank you for the fast answer!
yes its pretty old build I did few years ago.. I have had it oc'd for some years but then I set it back as I dont want it to burn out fast . Because I might not be able to buy new parts as I pay my own bills..
Anyhow.. as to getting new build is kinda hard now because for that I will have to replace pretty much all except the case and power supply . I'll have to get new mobo, cpu, cpu fan, ram, gpu and prob HDDs and DVDroms as well lolz
for case I have Antec 1200 btw.. so for that Im ok i think lol



Don't...
