Hello to everyone,

I am new to this forum, and I need a little bit of help. 😊
I have an old PC setup from 2009 which I haven't been using for 5 years. Now I want to learn GPU programming using CUDA platform, so I was thinking of bringing this setup into life by adding CUDA capable graphic card. I would use this setup only for understanding of GPU programming, so it won't be used for some extensive computation., just for learning purpose.

The setup:
CPU: Intel Q8200 2.33 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P5KPL SE
Current graphic card: Gigabyte Radeon 4870 HD GDDR5 1 GB

Could you suggest me some Nvidia graphic card with CUDA capability which would fit this CPU and Motherboard setup? I don't want to invest too much money in upgrading 10 years old PC.
Would Nvidia GTX 560 Ti do the job?

Thank you very much. 😊

Best regards
 
Yes, Nvidia GPU which supports CUDA will work, including the GTX 560 Ti. Though, the last BIOS version of your OS is from 2010, a bit old. Some of the newer UEFI cards may or may not work properly. That's an LGA775 Platform.

Which power supply unit do you have ?

Thank you for your fast reply.
I really don't know right now, since I am not at home, but as I remember it is 500 W PSU.
