I was looking at getting the following video card and mobo. The mobo is pretty cheap - will it hinder the performance of the video card I selected? Thanks for your advice!

and

ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

No, the video card should perform well on that motherboard.

However, in case you did not notice yourself, in choosing the SE version you are getting a crippled card compared to the regular 1 GB edition.

I noticed. The price seems right between the performance of the SE and 1gb. Do you disagree? Honestly Im going back and forth....

Well if your going to SLI/Crossfire,then yes, your graphics card might suffer from a x4 lane.
