Default Asus p5n-d - new video card upgrade

Hello guys,

I was wondering if you guys could give me a hand understanding what video card my mobo takes exactly.

2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 - Single VGA mode: x16 - SLI mode: Hardware ready for x16, x16
2 x PCIe x1
2 x PCI 2.2

However i was told upgrade to
MSI N650-1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card



would this be compatible with my machine? If not can someone suggest a video card within the 100 to 130 dollar range, thank you.

I've found a list on Newegg Newegg.com - PCI Express 2.0 x16, As for the video card you were recommended that won't work with your motherboard (Specs here P5N-D - Motherboards - ASUS), I'd recommend something like this GIGABYTE GV-N630-2GI GeForce GT 630 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Newegg.com but if your are going to be playing some games that games are graphics intense I'd custom build a desktop that could handle it..

Newegg.ca - MSI N640-1GD5/LP GeForce GT 640 1GB 64-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

I was also looking at this video card, this would work with my system correct? I was debating between Newegg.ca - MSI N640-1GD5/LP GeForce GT 640 1GB 64-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card and Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! im leaning towards the first one because its just reg hdmi and not mini. Also would you happen to know if MSI makes quiet cards?

Yeah I'd go for the top one and I don't think MSI make quiet cards.
