i have got Subertooth x58 would my motherboard support this GPU EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked 2GB

Intel i7 64bit - 6GB ram PSU 1500W

Also one more question i am really confused between EVGA , MSI ,ASUS , ZOTEC cards i don't know what to chose also when i see the photos some of them got 2 fans and one got 1 fan so would temp be a problem ? my GPU now is GTX 460 1 fan but its 39c but i believe it got really good cooling system built in ?

You need a x16 3.0 Generation for that GPU. Unfortunately looks like your mobo has only a x16 2.0 :( . Generally EVGA cards are better. Asus also is good and their DIRECTCUII cooling is quite nice

Edit- Why do u have a 1500 watt psu >.>

You should be good to go. Your motherboard supports that card just fine.

There's not too much difference between the different brands of GPU as long as you stick to the reputable ones like EVGA, MSI, Asus. Manufacturers often put their own cooling solutions on the GPU, but some models (especially the non-factory OC ones) may use the reference cooler. The reference cooler on the 760 is pretty good and so are most of the custom ones, so don't worry too much about which cooling solution comes with the GPU.

That doesn't really matter. You can plug in 3.0 cards into 2.0 slots, as long as you have x16 slots (which that mobo does). You won't even notice a drop in performance; you're not going to saturate 2.0 x16 bandwidth with one 760.

Yes. You'll have no problem with the 760 card on a the Sabertooth X58 board.

The cards with more than one fan are custom cooling solutions. For the last three generations of video cards, I've personally used the stock Nvidia-specification cooling solutions on 570s, 580s, 650s, 660s, 670s, 680s, and 780s with no heat issues. When using the stock solution (single fan), using EVGA's Precision X software with a custom fan profile has proven to keep temperatures down tremendously. You'd be surprised what a slightly steeper slope on the fan curve will do to keep temperatures low. Even before I started using the Precision X software, my temps stayed within specifications on my 580s without heating up the case.

The key is to have a case with good airflow in the first place. This goes a long way to keeping temps under control in general.

From a manufacturer preference standpoint, of those you've listed, I'd have no problem using the EVGA, MSI or Asus.
