Your mother board supports the AMD card :)

It will run your card fine :) 

Just the bandwidth the pcie offers on your board is less as compared to modern boards.

All motherboards to my knowledge will accept amd or nvidia cards but that old of a board you should consider a upgrade soon to be on the fast track with the newer cards and pc coponents.

Just my 2 cents.
