Hi I wanted to upgrade my GPU and was wondering if my board would be compatible to the Nvidia GTX570.
Board: MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 (MS-7309)
CPU: Amd Athlon II X2 250
Current GPU: GeForce 9500 GT
PSU:600W
RAM:4GB
I would appreciate if you can suggest other upgrades with my specs.

Yes, but your CPU will probably bottleneck it.

His motherboard only supports CPUs with a 65W TDP or below so a 945 (or any quad-core) won't work.

So I should really change my board?
I just want to upgrade my GPU to improve my PC performance when editing videos.
And GTX570 is most preferred. Any suggestion for a GPU for video editing that my Pc could support would be gladly appreciated.

One last question. Can my Pc still handle both Phenom II X6 and GTX570?

if your editing video you would REALLY benefit from at least a quad core than that dual core you have now. cuda is great but it really isn't all that.

+1

The PII X6 is the best upgrade you can make for video editing.

@aicom
PSU: Power Choice
AC INPUT:230V,50Hz,4A
Model: PC-580W
Do you think it'll work?

@looniam
I too want to have atleast a quadcore. But I can't,for the meantime I'd like to use what I have. And atleast upgrade my GPU :)

Your GPU is not the most important upgrade for you. The CPU is. I'd also get a new PSU. I've never heard of that brand before. My recommendation would be a Seasonic 620W (which I currently use). If you buy it today you can get it $20 off by adding the promo code listed on that page.

He only needs a Phenom II X4. Unless he's trying to Max out BF3.... With that chipset. I highly doubt it. A Phenom II X4 will suite his needs Plenty. I would look at the Phenom II 965 my self. it shouldnt bottleneck a 570. and Good Luck with you Video Editing. Also the 570 is compatible with your Motherboard. PCI Express 2.0 is backwards compatibale with 1.0 and 3.0 is compatiable with 2.0 and 1.0.. Even tho if your running a 1.0 board and getting a 3.0 card.... I would look at bottlenecks.... Sorry got carried away. So....

Phenom II 965 and your GTX 570 is good to go!

Negative. Video editing is heavily threaded and he's not gaming so an X6 is a no brainer.

You need to upgrade your Power Supply

Here is what you can do.... Balance the money out to other area's Try this

a GTX 560 ti' which is about 100$ cheaper... Put that extra 100$ towards a better power supply

Also if you wanted to. You could get buy a 600 watt Power Supply and maybe just scrath by with a GTX 560 ti 448 core. I know a few people that render videos and the 448 core is their weapon of choice. You don't need a 570. the 448 core has the same amount of Video Memory and is almost a 580 from what i was told

Hmmm we will see about that. He doesn't need a Black Edition because for 1 reason..... Hes not gonna overclock that on board. Dude a 965 is plenty enough. Besides Do we even Know if that board supports Phenom X6's?...... Some old AM3 boards before the M4A88 board i had.... Didnt support the Phenom II x6

Yes it supports an 1045T X6 (any X6 as long as it's 95W, I was surprised too). It's not a black edition (only the 1090T and 1100T were). Video editing will eat all the resources it can get it's greedy code on.

Okay? Shift to 560 ti 448 core instead of 570?
I mainly use Adobe After Effects and Various 3D softwares.

Yea the 560 ti 448 core is plenty and you will probably save about 75-100$ depending on the model... Whats your budget?, 300? 350?

Actually the best AMD CPU's on the market right now is the Phenom II 980, 975, 970 and a 1090 or 1100T. the 6 cores are the harder to find
