    It will work as long as it's a PCIE 2.0 card not 2.1.

    2.1 cards have some problems running on PCIE 1.0 motherboards, for example this card : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102859&cm_re=5750-_-14-102-859-_-Product will run on your mobo without any problems.

    but this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131372&cm_re=5750-_-14-131-372-_-Product will likely have problems

    These spec's have nothing to do with what kind of graphic card I get. dddr5 etc? as long as it is a 2.0 & not a 2.1. So the XFX ATI Radeon HD 5750 1 GB will enhance my system greatly
