P.s just checked order history from when i brought all the components! The processor is listed at intel q6600 GO, so i assume this is good for me?




Yep, G0 was the best stepping (version) of this processor. Should be able to overclock nicely.

Open your PC and take a picture of the PSU's label or write the info it provides down. What we;re looking for is how many amps does the 12v rail provides or if it has more than one. This is one of the main factors to consider when upgrading to a new gpu.

Well Matt according to the minimum specs for the 560ti your PSU does qualify. However there could be a chance that your PSU craps out due to the load of the gpu+additional components on the PC.

If I were you I would buy the card but you should save like $70 in case you need a new PSU.
