Solid state drive compatibility?

Will this solid state drive work on my motherboard as a bootable drive?
My motherboard is the ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3. The solid state drive is here:

also, how long do these generally last as bootable drives?

    It will work, but since the card is PCI-E 4x, and (assuming you're going to be using the x16 slot for a video card) both of the other ports are pci-e 1x, you won't get the full performance that that drive is capable of.
    As far as lifetime, I have never owned an SSD, but from what i understand, the technology has improved a bit to where the memory lasts longer, and theres extra space added to take the place of any bad sectors, so it should last you a pretty long time.

    Are you using the integrated ATI Radeon HD 4250 GPU on the motherboard or are you using a discrete graphics card?

    If the motherboard's single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot is already occupied don't bother getting the RevoDrive. It doesn't work properly, if at all, in a PCIe x1 slot.

    The RevoDrive also doesn't have TRIM support.

    You should hope that it lasts at least as long as its 3-year warranty.
