  1. Srry, the gtx 950 isn't compatible with your mobo. A card for the same price that is compatible is the gtx 660, buy the asus, gigabyte or msi version of it.

    What? Yes a 950 is most certainly compatible with his mobo.

    What model 500watt psu do you have? Is it 4 years old as well?

    In compatible gpu's the latest they have listed is the 600 series. I wouldn't use that site anymore Skittish their info seems out dated.

    Ok, I wouldn't rely on that website, it looks bad with false information.

    It even says not to use higher than pci-e 2 cards...
  11. Yeah

    BTW I said that at the beggining
