  1. Typically,You would have needed to upgrade your powersupply also.
    Did you and forget to tell us?
  2. If it fits in your case, then probably, yes.
  3. i change the powersupply. and it fits in the motherboard but when i switch it on nothing happens

    What PSU did you change? You need at least 600-700 watts.
  5. i change the powersupply, i have one cx750w, and the screen is black, when i put the old graphic card everything works fine.
    i check in pc-specs.com and it says the mother board is not compatible, the tecnician in the store says i just have to update the bios. ill probably just buy a new mother board compatible with my processor
  6. the go to the motherboard website and download the latest BIOS for it.
