  1. yes but you may need a new PSU depending on your wattage. here is a cheap one that is good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182039 this can be used in future builds for single video card systems.
  2. thank you! i noticed that my pci options are 1.0a in one of the lines, and the card says it requires pci-e2.0 am I missing something?
  3. it says you have a pcie x16. thats what you need, the 560 is backwards compatible to the older slots
  4. thank you =)
  5. A pentium 4 is seriously going to bottleneck a 560ti. I would not recommend that psu, those old rosewill psus are known to blow, horrible ratings and isn't even 80 plus. Would go with one of these way better quality, not much difference in price and the better efficiency will save you money in the long run.

  6. 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
  7. correction: this badboy is running at 32C
  8. 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.
  9. 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
