  1. if your motherboard has a pci express slot and a good strong power supply why not
  2. That motherboard has one PCI-E x16 slot. So yet it will work.

    HOWEVER - You need to make sure your Power Supply is up to snuff. The GTX 260 requires TWO 6-pin power connectors, and can draw a decent wattage (182W TDP). Can you give us the model number on your power supply?

  3. Thanks for the info,i really appreciate it.
  4. No problem! Just so it's clear, the GTX 260 is recommended for a 500W power supply or greater (unless you have a good quality PSU).
  5. okay,i'll get a 500w PSU.
  6. If you DO NOT want more than one video card, these are probably the least expensive ones I'd look at:

    Seasonic 520W (2 x 6pin) $59.99

    Antec 550W (2 x 6pin) $59.99

  7. Or if you want the option to power more than one video card in the future:

    Thermaltake 650W (4 x 6pin) $79.99

    Antec 650W TruePower SLI (4 x 6pin) $99.99
