It'll work, but that card is blatent over kill. You'll have a massive bottle neck, and you'll actually get less FPS with a GTX 260 that a 9800GT with that CPU. You need more RAM too. Also, unless you have two PCIe 6 pin connectors, or 4 free molex connectors (and NOT ones with "Y" cables on them) you can't pull it off.
