Gday.
Thanks for the adtional info.

Q1 - Do i even need to upgrade my motherboard
No. the board is OK.
(do i have a pci-express 2.0 slot) ?

Yes, so ti will take the GPU.

The Ark PSU is totally no good. You don't need a top end PSU but you do need a decent one, either of these will be good for your build, > http://www.newegg.co...%24%24%24%24%24

Q2 - Will The new graphic card im going to purchase work perfectly if i get those parts ?


The card will work with the other hardware.
"perfectly" Impossible to say. The video card performance may be hindered a little as the CPU is a little weak, but there is no actual way of telling until you start to play games.

If you mean the item that I have highlighted it is a heatsink that is used on the North and Southbridge, see examples @ http://www.google.co...9QEwAA&dur=1425

Its me Nero, The problem is the graphic card is somewhat to big so it hits the heatsink. Therefore it cant be pushed all the way into the pci express slot.

Gday.

Unfortunately you can't do much about the obstruction.
Consider a RMA/exchange and get a GTX 650 ti. The Ref card is only 6 inches long, so ends at the PCI-E slot. Some of the card manufacturers have incorporated there own fan solutions so that they have kept the same length. You will loose some performance compared the the 560 ti, aprox 2 to 3 fps

New problem came up... everything as i posted before it okay. The new problem is that since my mobo n processor is old they use old plugs. My pc uses a ph cable for the processor. to power the processor. My new psu doesnt have that plug. or i think its 4-pin. need 8pin female to 4 pin male

Not quite understanding the plugs you are referring to.
Do you mean, the 4 pin 12 volt socket on the motherboard and you have a cable/plug from the power supply that is 8 pin 12 volt?
