  1. Your motherboard can handle either of the graphics cards but I don't know if you have a quality PSU with the necessary wattage and/or cable(s) to handle it or not. Also your CPU might become a bottleneck to both graphics cards.

    +1 your psu might not be able to handle it, a lot of graphics cards come with molex to 6 pin adapters to help out though you probably want a 500w power supply
