  5. Dear,

    Your mobo is X58 chipset series from Intel. I would recommend you to buy either GTX 760 or GTX 750/750Ti Later is $150 and will give your more results/performance than GTX 650Ti.

Thank you very much for your help..Its awesome the times we live in!!!

    My vote goes to GTX 760.
  10. You might want to wait for just a little bit for the GTX 750 Ti to be released. Its almost as powerful as an HD 7850 and does not require an external power connector (gets all its power from the PCI-E slot just like your current card).
  11. He has a good budget. If he sticks with GTX 760, it will fulfill his future requirement as well.

    again please excuse my ignorance on this subject....Is my PC PCIe3.0

    No it is PCIe 2.0. But any PCIe 3.0 enabled card will run on it so no worries.
  14. check your powersuply and make sure you have one 6 and one 8 pin pcie powercable. I guess the one you have now does not have that(if it does you dont need another one) so look for a new one that is at least 500w from a brand like seasonic, antec, xfx and corsair.
  15. No need to change psu as the psu shipped with basic version is 525w.

    Do you know if there are the right power connectors on it then?
  17. Hopefully, our OP will check and confirm this or can provide make/model of the psu so that it can be checked.
