I have an AMD Phenom X4 9600
Motherboard: MCP6P M2+
RAM:4,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2

I would like to change this to a gaming pc without changing many parts. I wanna use a GTX 670 or an equivalent performance graphicboard.
I was trying to find if this Motherboard supports a GTX 670 cause its just say that has a PCI Express slot.
If its possible I would change the PSU , CPU and buy the GTX 670.

What would you recommend me ?!


Budget Range: maximum 1200
