It will work since it's PCI-E 2.0, but a 590 will be bottlenecked by that Phenom II, not to mention if your Power Supply will be able to power the 590 at all

There is no way that's going to work with a power hungry GTX 590, I'm actually surprised that it works with that GT 440, the only little "upgrade" that I could recommend would be a radeon 7750
