Looks like it has the horse power. Board specs look good. I personally would take the ram up 2 or 4 gigs. If you do make sure you do it in matched sets.
A few of us use the 650 ti. I have the EVGA brand name. Good stuff. Make sure your PSU is up to the job and has a 6 pin plug for the vid card.

From the EVGA website
Quote:
Requirements

Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 20 Amps.)
Total Power Draw : 110 Watts
EVGA | Products | EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti | 01G-P4-3650-KR, So you need a better PSU, The one I listed is good.
