Yes for a single GPU rig! For gaming you will be better of with a faster X4 than a slow X6.

The 970 boards have two slots one running at X16 the other at X4 speeds it is a less recommended setup than the 990X which runs dual at X8 X8.

For a Gaming Rig, better you use AMD Phenom II X4 970 or X4 980 instead of X6 1075.
