Hello.
I bought a new MSI Nvidia gtx 960 and i want to install this on my pc, after checking around the nett, i found out my Motherboard HP IPISB-CH2 is not able to run it as its not up to date with the 3.0. I am willing to upgrade my motherbaord but i understand i just cant buy any motherbaord, so is there a motherboard that can replace HP IPISB-CH2 with the ability to run this new graffic card, also without having to replace anything else? and if i will have to replace anything else, what would that have to be?
This is my PC http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03054415&DocLang=en&docLocale=en_US&jumpid=...
Hoping for a quick and helpful response

Razack, welcome to the forum.
The problem with running the GTX 960 is not the video slot.  It is the BIOS in the motherboard.  It requires UEFI firmware instead of a standard BIOS.  The card is 3.0, but will work in the existing slot.  They are backward compatible.
There are two main problems with upgrading the motherboard; the Recovery disks won't work and there may be problems with the front panel connectors.  If you decide to upgrade it, you need to buy a uATX Form Factor.  Also, it has to be made for socket LGA 1155 Intel processors.  This will allow you to use the existing processor.
