Any single graphics card will fit in any motherboard provided has the proper socket, such as a PCIe x16.

The issue is for using 2 or more in Crossfire or SLI.

As for maximum performance your CPU is what limits your graphics card. For smooth play you need sufficient RAM.

If I knew more specs I could offer better advice.

well heres my specs
Cpu: Athlon x2 4600+ 2.4 ghz dual core
Ram: 4gb dual channel bus 800 kingstone
Windows:both xp(sp2) and vist(sp1)
power 530 watt(not sure bout the brand)

I just wanted to know that:
is there a lot of difference(regarding performance in games like fallout 3 or fracry2) if I use ati4850 with a mainboard with nvidia nforce chipset instead of a mainboard with amd chipset.
