    That's a big no I'm afraid. That's an AMD board and an Intel processor.
  2. So i could get an AMD processor to go with it though right? and would having an AMD processor with the GTX 750 TI as my GPU be ok?

    Yes is the short answer.

    I did have one of those boards, it's not a great board by todays standards I would consider an upgrade. However you can still make the board work. I would suggest going for a Phenom x4 or Athlon x4 off this list:

    I would also suggest going for an AMD Radeon R9 270 rather than a 750ti. The R9 270 is almost the same price but is a more capable gaming card. The 750ti is a great card but more because it does so much using so little power, not in outright performance terms. 8gb or DDR3 1333mhz would be more than enough also.

    FYI to get a processor for that board you will most likely need to buy one second hand.
