    Hi there, you do have a PCI-E slot on your motherboard so it should work however your power supply seems like it is not 500 watts, you may need to replace it. Cheap power supplies often do not provide the actual labelled wattage and yours is probably one of them. If you do get it to work then you should expect bottlenecking which means your Video card's performance will be limited by the slow CPU, try overclocking it a bit more to see if you can help.
  2. Thanks for your quick reply. This mobo has a x16 lane PCI-E slot.. and i already overclocked my CPU to 2.6
    The stock of this CPU is 2.22
  3. Okay are you aware of your power supply? It probably does not put down 500 watts. Verify this is your power supply:

    18 amps on the 12 v rail is definitely not suitable for a 500 watt power supply.
