Where to insert GTX 770 graphics card? In the AGP Slot or in the PCI-E slot?

I've bought a Zotac GTX 770 graphics card. Coming to my specs,
Processor - 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2600K LINK - http://ark.intel.com/products/52214
RAM - 12GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz
PSU - Cooler Master Thunder 700W PSU
This is the link for my PSU..

I hope this PSU is enough for this card, if not please refer a PSU that supports this card...
And my mother board is an INTEL DZ68DB. This is the link to my motherboard specs...

If you look at the expansion capabilities, it says that this motherboard has One PCI Express* 2.0 x 16 discrete graphics card connector, Two PCI Express 2.0 x 1 connectors and Three Conventional PCI bus connectors. I have no idea what it means, but I think it has a PCI-Express 2.0 Slot.My motherboard supports GTX 770 right? If so, It has a total of 4 slots, 1 of which is blue in color, which I think is the AGP Slot, and three other slots that are white in color which according to me are the PCI slots. But I am not sure which among those 3 is the PCI-Express Slot.

Here is the pic of my motherboard...

I dont know where to insert the card. Should I insert it in the slot marked as 1? or in 2? or in 3? or in 4?

  1. Your GPU will fit into the top slot, I believe the one you labeled as #1.

    PSU should be capable of powering your 770 no problem, I however have not read any reviews on it, though.
  2. Thank you very much for the quick reply,

    No offense, but are you sure that my motherboard supports gtx 770? Because I've asked the same question on yahoo, and they said it doesnt support GTX 770.

    So are you sure that my motherboard supports gtx 770?

    And I should insert in the slot labeled as 1 right? If you could not see the pic clearly, I mean, the arrows have blocked the markings (cuts) on the pci slots, So, I modified the pic.. here it is...

    a PCI-E 3.0 card is fully backwards compatible with a PCI-E 2.0 slot. and really it won't make any performance difference - so you have no worries :)

    that guy who replied on yahoo answers didn't read your whole question - he called you cpu old when its an i7-2600 - he should know that your board wouldn't have an AGP slot :P
  4. @qbsinfo - Thank you very much... That was really helpful... So I should insert the GTX 770 in the slot labelled as #1 right?

    YES! it is the only one it will fit. :)

    a 770 will be great in that rig.
