as long as your mobo has PCI-E x16 lanes then you're good to go. having said that from your hardware list it indicates you have PCI-E x16 lanes for your mobo. what is your PSU brand and model?

Thanks. PSU is a Thermaltake TR2 W0388RU 600W. I'm due for an upgrade soon though. I want to keep upgrading CPU's/GPU's not PSU's xD

you should be fine with your current gpu unless you have a plan to run multi-gpu setup in the future :)
