Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if I should upgrade my GPU to a Galaxy GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB with my ASUS P8H67-M LE REV 3 mother board.

Galaxy GTX 650 ti Boost 2 GB: http://www.galaxytech.com/__EN_GB__/Product2/ProductDetail?proID=39&isStop=0

My Mother Board: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H67M_LE/

Also, the GPU requires a 6-pin power connector, and I found a 6-pin connector that connects from my PSU and I'm wondering if any 6-pin will match or it has to be a certain type. Also, the GPU is "dual-width", does that mean I will need two PCIe slots? Thanks in advance!

Your mobo have PCI Express 2.0 slot.......while your graphics card uses PCI Express 3.0 slot.....no problem cuz PCIe 3.0 slots are backward compatible with 2.0,maybe you juz cant utilize your graphic card's full speed.....any 6 pin power connector from your psu will match the GPU's power connector....dual width doesnt mean it needs two PCIe slots....it means the card is as wide as two cards,and needs two slots at the back of your PC's case.....juz take a look at you graphic's card backplate.....you will know....

Would work just fine, pcie 3.0 isnt being used to its full potential right now.
And yes, 2 expansion slots are needed in your case, which is the standard.
