geforce gtx 650 ti compatible with intel core 2 quad??

sorry for the misleading title..

i was just asking if geforce gtx 650 ti is compatible with my system.. cuz the 650ti is the only gpu that i like to buy and afford ($160).. cuz i want to change my old gpu geforce 210 so that i can play bf4, cnc generals 2, csgo, and cod collection.. i dont have a ton of cash to upgrade my cpu and power suppy.. also, in a case where the gtx 650 is not the gpu for me.. please give me recommendations on a gpu that is suited to fps, rts and video editing.. :)

System specs: via speccy

  1. Compatibility of a graphics card has nothing to do with the CPU.
    All you needed to tell us was motherboard make & model, not post a speccy list that's full of irrelevant information.

    Right, your mobo is an ASRock G41C-GS which has one PCI Express x1 slot, and one PCI Express x16 slot.
    So the GTX 650 Ti is compatible.

    You will also have to upgrade the PSU if it's less than 400w
  2. Need PSU brand and model, as well as case type/size/brand/model.

    For your budget the 650 Ti is not the best pick. R7 260X is faster by a bit and is about $120. The 750 Ti is faster as well, but is more than the 260x with the biggest advantage is that the 750 Ti uses a lot less power for the same speed. If you have a smaller case and a weaker power supply, 750 Ti is a good pick. To go up a bit from that, R9 270 is at the top range of your budget but may be a good buy if you plan on upgrading the full computer eventually. The R9 270 will be a viable mid-range card for several years for you even if you move to a faster system.
  3. im a bit noob at talking at looking at the specifications but ill try.. im 18y.o.. my dad died so i took responsibility of my dads computer.. im from the philippines btw.. look at my dxdiag for more info :)
    dxdiag link: https://www.mediafire.com/?82ur8b28a6282cb

    win7 home basic 32bit
    psu: 500w psu
    cpu: intel core 2 quad @ 2.50Ghz
    memory: 2gb of ram (kingston)
    gpu:nvidia geforce 210 (working in mint condition)
    monitor: samsung syncmaster 740nw
    mobo: asrock g41c-gs and intel dg41rq (replaced by intel due to a broken chip)
    storage: seagate 500gb sata (i think)
    my rig is pretty much ancient.. any suggestions before i take it to a technitian?

    btw: my system unit can accompany a gpu with a maximum length of about 10-9 inches only.. thats how small my system chassis is.. my budget is 7040 pesos or in dollars thats $160..

    US prices may be different than yours, if you can manage to move up a bit in price to the R9 270, it will be good. It may be a bit too fast for your current system but will be fast enough to last for a while and can be moved to a new computer later on. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131545

    If you are stuck at your budget, R7 260 is a good pick for you http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127762

    Both cards will fit lengthwise, they are well under 10 inches long. Just make sure you have enough space to fit the fans.

    You also should upgrade the RAM to 4 gig.

    PS Philippines is a great country for my favorite pastime, Efren Reyes is a real sports hero there :) Always enjoy helping out people from there.
