I recetly bought new mobo/cpu/ram upgrade for my computer. Not trusting myself to do the job, i took it to geek squad to have them install everything. They just now told me they cant, because the mobo isnt compatible with my gcard, a GTX 560ti. A new card that should have no problems. The mobo i bought is Classic DH61SA Desktop Motherboard. Can anyone tell me the problem? Or which motherboard WOULD work?

You do not have a PCIe slot for the graphics card. Your motherboard has 1 PCIe x1, which will not hold the GTX. And you have a PCI slot, which will not hold the GTX.

You need a motherboard with a PCIe x8 or (preferably) a PCIe x16 slot.
