Yes it will. I hope the rest of your components are up to snuff to support such a card. Have fun!

Yes sure it will.

But that is an old mobo model.

I have a better card suggestion



Try ATI HD 4850, suggested mobo 790FX from MSI

Priced at $199 yet faster than that of your current choice or faster than 9800GTX

EDIT:
Ok I decided to go with the 4850

here is my current setup I built this compute1-2 years ago
MSI K9n Platinum
AMD AM2 Athlon X2 3600 1.9ghz
4gb DDR2-800 Memory
Antec 500w PSU

Is my setup fine to work with this video card?



Thanks

Yes the list would be out dated, as the new 4850 has just been released.

Get the 4850

Synthetic benchmarks aren't everything. Game performance is different for every rendering engine. Unreal 3 Engine and Cryengine are examples. Take this into account when you decide.

4850 performed better on most other game engines though.

As for "manufacturers," they're actually just distributers at this point. The cards are made on the same factory floors, and sent to distributers such as Sapphire, Diamond, and Asus, where they past on different stickers. You have to wait a few months for non-reference cards to come out.
