Yeah, the motherboard will work with the card. As for the card itself, it's great for mid-level gaming and has a nice price. :smile:

Just keep in mind that you may have some issues if you're planning to SLI, since this card gets hot based on my research on this card.

From what i readed, to do SLI you need 2+ card? Well the only thing ill change on my computer will be do a little bit of overclocking with my CPU, nothing more!

Just a word of warning though, if you do plan on getting that motherboard and the GTX 480, you won't be able to SLI as the motherboard only supports CrossfireX. And yes, SLI (NVIDIA) and CrossfireX (AMD) can hold up to 4 cards.
