I am looking into buying a new video card for my computer, but am having trouble finding out if the card and the computer are compatible. the card I am looking to buy is a EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support, and I have an HP pavilion p7-1003 desktop with no new/custom parts. Would I need anything other then a new power-supply, and if so what?

It is compatible :thumbup2:. You need a minimum of a 450 watt power supply

That computer does have the PCI express X 16, but I couldn't find any mention of it being 2.0 or 3.0. It should work with either one, if it is 2.0 it will be backward compatible.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
