Will an Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Graphics Card be compatible with my current motherboard?

currently i have a nvidia geforce GT 520 1gb graphics card and want to upgrade to Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Graphics Card (2GB GDDR5, PCI Express 3.0, HDMI, DVI-I, VGA). My motherboard's model is P5QL and was made by ASUSTek, not sure if you need more information about it but i would like to know if this is compatibe with my current motherboard and if not any suggestion for a graphics card, thanks

  1. Your motherboard has a PCI-E x16 slot, that means it's compatible. I'd be more worried about your power supply, what's the exact model of your PSU?
  2. FSP450-60APN
  3. Well it's not the greatest one out there, but it should be able to handle that GPU.
  4. Thanks alot so my pc can handle this new graphics card and it's compatible?

    Which one of these is the GTX 650 we're talking about?

    The first GPU needs a 6-pin PCI-E power connector so make sure you have one of those.
  6. That requires at least one of those connectors in the picture above. You have one of those coming out of your PSU, right?
  7. i have a 4 pin connector :/
  8. And no 6 pin connector? Are you sure?
  9. i might have a 6 pin in my current graphics card
  10. Can you check that? It's vital to know if you have a 6-pin.
  11. nope 2 four pin connections
  12. In that case you'll need an adapter, although a new PSU might be a good idea.
