I think Aheers meant HE was the uneducated user, not you. English can be quite a misleading language at the best of times...
About the motherboard however, I would say that the board should be able to accept it but there are a few things I would check.
1) Make sure it physically fits in the case. These newer more powerful cards are quite large.
2) It is likely that your power supply won't have the right connectors for the card. You also need to make sure you have a "large" enough supply. I would say 450w as a minimum, but you can look at some of the PSU calculators on the net to get more specific. If your PSU is large enough, but doesn't have the right connectors you can get some adapters for some spare molex connectors.
Good luck! Great upgrade to your computer...the new graphics card will make it great for a while yet!Go to the full post
