Hello, I am planning on upgrading my junk graphics card to something a little more substantial, my only question is if the motherboard can handle it. I currently have a GT220 card, and a MS-6713 motherboard. I plan on upgrading to a GTX 560 ti. I will also upgrade the power supply for my computer. That being said will my motherboard be able to handle the upgrade?

(http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01979880&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=ca&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4120525) here is a link to my computer.

Any help is appreciated.

Running at 1680 x 1050, hoping to play BF3 and Skyrim quite nicely. (got a chance to test BF3 during alpha and it ran really poorly). I'm guessing PSU is power supply? (not super tech savy), I figure I would just get a unit that provides enough wattage for the new card, and I use 64 bit win 7.

So you don't think the 560 is required? Is there another card that is better value around $200-250?

I'll take a look at those suggested cards then, thank you.

I hope to spend around 200 bucks on the card, and 50 bucks on the psu if possible. I usually go to memory express for hardware.

Canada, i'm not to worried about where to buy though. I was more concerned about whether or not my motherboard would handle an upgrade to one of the newer cards. I appreciate your help, i'll look into the cards you mentioned, and the psu.
