New build worried about compatibility with video card

Here are the components I am thiking of using in my build.

- AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX
- ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard
- OCZ Special Ops Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3SOE1600LV4GK
- GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

I have the case, harddrive, powersupply and cpu cooler already.

Will this video card work with this motherboard/processor or should I consider a Radeon HD 5850??

Thanks,

Fitzy

More about build worried compatibility video card
  1. if u look at the specifications (if ur buying on newegg, which would be recomended~) it should tell u what pci slot the video card uses and what pci slots the motherboard has. just saying so u could figure that part out if u wanna learn more~ (tookme a bit to figure it out)

    i think you could do better on the processor.... although before i go on any more we need more info on what u want :]

    APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better))

    BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: 600-800) Before / After Rebates

    SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies)

    PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using**

    PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing)

    COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (e.g.: Grand Fenwick)

    PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case)

    OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe

    SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes / No / Maybe

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Include a list of any parts you have already selected with descriptively labeled links for parts.

    The easiest method is to paste the label on one line and then paste the link below it.
    Example:
    Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823126043

    Looks like:
    Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6823126043

    Links can also be created using the following format: paste the label here

    The paperclip button on the toolbar gives this: paste the label here

    Example:
    Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard - Retail
  2. Mostly I will be using it for gaming, so far have been looking on newegg.com for parts, all i need is a motherboard, processor, a video card, and RAM.

    The links for the parts I was looking at are-

    -AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX

    I posted this because a friend send something about the video card not working with the motherboard because it was AMD and the card was Nvidia he said it needed a Nvidia nforce 900 northbridge(or southbridge) was wondering if this was true??

    I am not going to SLI or crossfire.

    uhhh i havent seen a problem regarding an amd mobo not being compatable with nvidia ever. but just to be safe u should ask some more people incase im wrong.

    the videocard is a good choice, as for the processor i think u can go for AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core unless ur worried bout cost (about 100$ more)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849

    do u already have the other stuff? (cooling for case, case psu etc)
  4. I've got an Antec 900 case, 750W psu, and a heatsink/fan another friend said worked great.

    I think I'm going to stick with the 1055T not sure if the extra $100 is worth how much performance gain i would get

    Thanks for the help =)
