it says you have a pcie x16. thats what you need, the 560 is backwards compatible to the older slots

the previous owner installed what he said was either a 500 or 550 PSU and several fans, i am just wondering if the pieces are compatible and whether or not they will be slowed so much there is no point

Do you know what model psu it is? How many amps are on the +12v? You'd probably be better off with a lower card unless you plan to upgrade the rest of the the rig.

eh, P4 is a decent chip. it will bottle neck the GPU a bit but in the end a 560 is not that high end or that expensive of a card anyway.

do you ever plan to move this card into a new machine in the future?

i don't know the model of PSU or Amps, I checked inside and it's a blank black box with no info on it.

I plan on using this card on the current rig, then upgrading the mobo/processor as a combo later. After that I will probably switch to a higher end card. I am now looking at a used 5770 on Amazon because it is $50
