Hi, I own a custom built PC hat has an Asus p8z77 motherbaord and i['m looking at upgrading my graphics card to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670. My only problem is that I have no idea how to tell if the two are compatible (my cousin built my PC). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All newish motherboards are compatible with both amd and nvidia cards period, you will be just fine.

For future reference:

On the motherboard information, look for expansion slots.

That motherboard has PCIE x16, 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0

The video card you want is PCIE x16 3.0.

It will fit. PCIEx16 is also backwards compatible. a 3.0 card will fit in a 3.0, 2.0, or 1.0 slot.

They're compatible alright. The question is, do you have the PSU for it?
