hi all. i would like to know if a gtx 680 would work with my motherboard which is a dell pc one.

i don't know much about computers but this is a temporary upgrade until i get my proper gaming pc.

these are the stats from cpu-z for the motherboard

manufacturer - dell inc model 0x231r chipset - intel DMI host bridge southbridge - intel P55 LPCIO - ITE IT8730

graphic interface version - PCI-E link width - X16 max supported X16

I very much doubt if the power supply unit (PSU) in the Dell will be enough for the GTX 680 + I suspect that your processor (CPU) would bottleneck the 680 and you would see very little benefit.

It would have been more useful to post the model number of the Dell then we can look at the specs.

just checked and found that the PSU would be no where near enough to run the gtx 680 so back to the drawing board i go thanks for the reply anyway
