Double checking that GeForce GTX 650 Ti could work

So, I am not extremely computer savvy at all.

I have managed to find out that my GPU is a Bestec with a maximum output of 250 W (that's what it says on the sticker on the side). The motherboard is a MSI Boston 1.0, with what I think is a PCI express 16 (am I correct? http://imgur.com/lIAQY ).

I was thinking of getting a graphics card, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, either this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Could somebody also explain the difference between those two?

AnandTech says the GTX 650 Ti has a TDP of 110 W, so the graphics card can be used on my crappy desktop right? RAM/CPU doesn't matter?

IT won't work. That is the old gpu slot. Also, I doubt 250w could support that system.

Nope, you are going to need to upgrade more than just the gpu. I would look into getting a different PC or even better, building one yourself to the specs and budget you want.

The current gpu is an intel integrated graphics card. How come a 250w would not work. Do I just need to get a new power supply?

NO! Just don't get it. The 650ti needs a 6 pin, and a 250w psu, probably won't have one. Also, even if it did, I doubt the psu could handle that much wattage. Also, new gpu's don't use that type of slot anymore.
