GRAPHICS CARD ASUS 560TI DC II 1GB GDDR5

It supports it, but I can't imagine why you'd buy such a poor-quality PSU brand as Cooler Master. Well, maybe that's being unfair. They're simply not nearly the greatest nor the greatest for the money.

Before I do that, I'll need to know if your system specs are components that you already own or are considering buying, but do not yet own. Also, would you mind laying off the caps? It's considered rude to type in all caps because that's analogous to yelling.

That's the PSU that I'd recommend for your build.

However, I think that you can do a little better than that build without spending more money. If you don't want my input, then I won't give it, but if you do, then feel free to ask.

Can you give me links to the exact components that you were going to buy and if not, at least a budget to work with?

What country do you live in? Can you give me links to one or more sites that you can buy from? I'm in the USA and although I'm getting a little better, I'm still not nearly familiar with other countries' online retailers.

BUT THIS CARD IS PCIE X16 3.0 BUT THE MOBO PCIE IS 2.0 WILL IT SUPPORT MY MOBO


Yes, it will work. PCIe is back-wards compatible. The PCIe 3.0 cards would even work in very old PCIe 1.0 computers. They run at the highest PCIe version and lane count supported by all relevant components (CPU, graphics card, and motherboard). Since the motherboard only supports PCIe 2.0, the cards will run in PCIe 2.0. This will not hurt performance by more than about 1%, so it doesn't really matter at all.
