I want to upgrade my PC graphics and I'm not sure If this will card will work. I have an amd a8 5600k apu, asus m55 Motherboard, g skill 8 gigs 1600 ram, Radeon HD 6670 gpu , corsair CX 430 PSU. I want to know what kind of GPU would be a good upgrade for this build budget is 200. I was looking at a r9 270 but was unsure if that will work with what I have.

Hi, the graphics card should be compatiable with your system as your motherboard has a PCI-E slot and a 430W power supply is capable of powering a 270X. Be mindful of the graphics card length as it may not fit in your case.
