Graphics card compatibility with mother board

I am looking into building my first computer needed to know if the graphics card I wish to purchase is compatible with my current mother board I got from a friend. The motherboard is an MSI ATX DDR3 2400 A88X-G45 motherboard and the graphics card is a MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 OC 2GB GDDR5. I also would like suggestions on a power supply for these because I don't know much about them. Thanks in advance. :)
By the way I am also open to any suggestions on a better graphics card and/or anything else that will help the build because all I have is the motherboard and a mouse. I want for it to play GTA 5 and Fallout 4 on high or ultra settings.
Sorry that I'm asking another new thing but I found a good deal on a EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti FTW DVI-I/HDMI/Display Port GDDR5 Graphics Card with ACX Cooling 02G-P4-3757-KR and was wondering a) if this was compatible and b) if this was better than the MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 from earlier this is the last thing thanks.

    Yes, the card is compatible. Any Tier 1 or 2 unit of 500w or more as listed at the following link will be fine.

    You won't be playing GTA V or Fallout 4 at ultra settings with a GTX 760 though unless you have a relatively low resolution. For 1080p I'd expect medium to high settings depending on resolution and also of course, depending on what kind of FPS you're expecting to get.
  2. The graphics card is compatible. But your CPU might cause some performance issues as GTA 5 and Fallout 4 are CPU intensive games. What CPU are you going to use? For those games you should use a quad core CPU. A dual core would probably perform horrible.
    GTX 760 is probably enough for 1080p. Ultra quality is probably too much not only for the GPU but also for the CPU.
