Thanks for the welcome,
What about the other specs?
I thought the power supply would be a problem
Realistically, you only need a PCIe x16 slot for it to be physically compatible with the GPU. It's an old GPU so shouldn't have an issue running on that chipset.

Realistically the other components don't particular dictate compatibility with a GPU, you need the motherboard with the right slot, and a PSU that can supply the power to it. Then only in newer GPUs do you sometimes struggle to get older chipsets to run.

Welcome to the forums my friend!

Main problem is the 660Ti can consume >150W by itself. The power supply will not be adequate, especially if it is a poor quality PSU, which it likely is - you'd want at least a good quality 450W in reality.
