Will The I5-2500 And Gf Gtx 650ti Be Compatible With My Pc? Help!?

i would like to upgrade my current PSU (i3-2120) to the i5-2500 but im unsure on weather or not it would be compatible with my Motherboard. My PC’s specs are here:
intel i5-2500 quad core processor
ALSO would the GF GTX 650ti be compatible with my rig?
Would love replys.

    Socket type: LGA 1155
    TDP: 35W up to 95W (processor dependent)
    Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
    Core i3-2xxx/T dual core
    Core i3-2xxx dual core
    Core i5-2xxx quad core
    Core i7-2xxx quad core
    Core G6xx/T dual core
    Either integrated graphics or the PCI Express x16 slot are usable at one time; they are not usable concurrently.
    The upgrade will work!

    The i5-2500 will be compatible because your motherboard has an LGA 1155 socket, and that’s what the i5-2500 uses.
    The GTX 650 Ti will fit, but since you have PCI express (PCIe) 2.0, you will not be able to get the performance you paid for, because the GTX 650 Ti uses PCIe 3.0, but they fit because they are backward compatible.
    But basically what happens is that your memory bandwidth is cut down by half, so your graphics card’s MAX frame rate in certain games goes down. For example, you are playing a gaming, where as with a PCIe 3.0 slot (double bandwidth) you can get up to 60 fps, now you can only get up to 40, and you can’t go any higher.

    Yes, the new CPU will be supported. Both are LGA1155 socket and come from the same processor generation, so the CPUs can be swapped.
    Now if you were talking about an i5 3550, then they would be physically swappable but you would need a firmware upgrade before the motherboard would work with the new processor.
    If your motherboard has PCIe slots, then you will be able to put that graphics card in, but you will need to make sure you have a power supply that can handle the power and has enough connectors for it.
