The R5 has nvidia geforce gtx 260 installed at the moment, I gave the rig to my nephew a couple of years ago & he wants to put a new card in it. The new card is Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX650 2GB DDR5 PCI-E.

Does anyone know if these are even the same type of cards?

I've been trying to search the internet for R5 specs, I don't have the original build list from 7 years ago, so I'm a bit lost how to help him...

Hello Jenny. It is likely you have a pre-Dell 'Legacy' system; there's a sub-forum here for legacy desktops like yours, also, a few of the founders of Alienware who were bought-out by Dell took their earnings & started a new company called OriginPC, where legacy owners are known to inhabit the Origin forum, & are encouraged to. You might try your luck in our sub-forum here & at Origin (support/troubleshooting & desktop discussion among others) http://niche.originpc.com/

Thank you so much for your reply, it was indeed purchased before Alienware was taken over by Dell. I'll try the origin. :)
