Hello everyone,

I really need help, I have an old Nvidia 650, so I decided to buy a new graphics card (RTX 2060), but I am not sure if it's compatible with my motherboard.

so your help is appreciated, thanks.

Yes, it's compatible. It has one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot for the GPU (1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (blue)). Just make sure you update the BIOS of your system as well, if need be. Do you also have a compatible PSU with you ?

Should replace that power supply, it's what a kid would call "icky".

Model number seems to imply it's a 600 watt one, but 12v rail is in three rails and total of 450watts with a lot of wasted voltage on the 5v rails.

Also do a BIOS update if there is one before swapping.

Okay. Within that budget you can easily gran any high quality PSU. For the RTX 2060 a minimum 500-550 Watts is required. You can increase the Wattage value, if you want some more extra headroom for OC, and future upgrades.

There are quite a few HIGH quality decent PSUs which I can recommend. Check the following links, and see whether you can grab one of these similar models. Like a said before, you won't be needing a very high wattage PSU for your PC, though you can buy one, if you have the budget.
