Hi,

So I just got this new GPU (a RTX 2060) and I realised my motherboard (Lenovo IS6XM) wasn't compatible, so I want to get a new one but I don't really know which one would be ideal because I'm no near an expert in PC building.

My specs:
Windows 10 64-bit
Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz
20,0 Go Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz
465GB Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 (SATA )
931GB Seagate SSD (SATA (SSD))

And my PSU provides 600W.

The price is most likely not an issue.

Thank you SO MUCH in advance for helping me with that! :)
 
Thanks for your answer but I've tried putting my new GPU in my motherboard and the only thing I got was a black screen and a series of beeps from my computer. If I understand well, it means that my computer detects the graphic card but is unable to use it for some reason. The 8 pin power connector is plugged in so the only solution I see would be my motherboard. Can you help me with that?
Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

Anyway here would be a modern system to upgrade to

Otherwise you would have to look around the used markets for a LGA1155 socket motherboard.

If your motherboard has a PCIe 3 or even 2 slot it is compatible and should work.

honestly its not worth replacing that motherboard, if price isnt an issue you would be better off buying a Ryzen CPU, a B550 (or B450) motherboard and some DDR4 3600mhz RAM.
