Hi, I currently have: a geforce 460, an AMD Phenom II x6 1055t processor, 6 gb ddr3 ram and an ASROCK N68C-S UCC motherboard. I'm looking to get an Nvidia 660 ti, an Intel 95 3570k processor, a Corsair 650w Tx and a phantom 410 white computer case. Will all of these parts work with each other and will all of these parts fit into my new case.

*update* I have decided I will purchase this power supply as it is cheaper.

Switching from an AMD to Intel will require a different motherboard since the sockets aren't compatible. So long as your PSU has the right power connectors for your GPU, it should work.

What are your full PC specs currently including model numbers?

the part that im interested in is what is the make and model of your current motherboard?

I've added the exact power supply I'll be purchasing. Will this work and give my computer enough power?

You definitely need a motherboard compatible with the intel processor . It will not fit your current board

Could you suggest a processor with the same power as the i5 that will be compatible with my motherboard?

Are you looking to increase gaming performance? If so, whats your current graphics card and power supply?

That mboard won't work with the new Intel CPU. I suggest you look at a 7 series mboard ( Z77, Z75, B75. )

And that PSU has enough power and connectors for your GPU.

I currently have a nvidia 460 graphics card and I don't know how to find what power supply is in my computer.

If your case and PSU can handle this, this upgrade would allow you to OC that 1055T and upgrade to a 7950:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Microcenter)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($199.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $229.98
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

if you are willing to spend lots of money though, then a 4th gen i5, new mobo and new graphics card would be the best upgrade:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($134.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($199.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $564.95
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

And no, your motherboard does not support that processor, your 1055T is pretty much your max CPU upgrade.

I'm not an AMD expert, but I don't think so. That's a AM3+ CPU and you've got an AM3 socket board. It's possible as some AM3 boards can take the + chips, but it's not a given. According to ASRock, it won't work. You've already got the best CPU that board can handle. And really, that Phenom should still give you pretty good gaming performance, you just need to upgrade your graphics card.

The smartest upgrade you could make is to fit a cooler and overclock the Phenom X6 .

Its actually better than some core i5's in encoding already, and it wont be far behind in gaming benchmarks for newer games that can mulktithread . Think Crysis 3 and BF3 .
The smart upgrade for gaming is to upgrade the graphics card and psu if you need to.

Thanks so much for your help. Last question, would I still need to buy the Corsair 750w power supply if I bought the i5, the cooler, the graphics card and the motherboard?

Technically, if your last PSU can power a 460 ( two 6-pin power leads, ) it can handle a 660 ( also two 6-pin. )

No your current PSU would do just fine.
