    Since you have a PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard it should work. However after some reading you may need to update your BIOS and look at a more powerful power supply.

    What power supply would you recommend?
  5. Best answer
    I would recommend something rated higher than 500W (500W won't give you much more than the 460W you already have). As far as brand goes you might want to take a look at these links which will be far more helpful than I will be:

    Did you get it working?

    I have nearly the same set-up and have struggled to get this working.
