Yes it will work but what is your other hardware that you are matching this with? If it is an old core2duo maybe some of that money would be better spent towards other components of the system.

I run on Win7 x64bit, 4gb ram(2 per slot) and a Core2Duo E7500

That is a lot of card for the E7500 to handle!

Well it is the most powerful single GPU card on the market and your CPU is not going to keep up with it even if you overclock it. Buying it now and sticking it in that system temporarily is all fine if you are planning an upgrade in the near future just make sure that you have a PSU that can handle it!

Can a core2quad support it? cause thats the max possible on my mobo and what power supply can you recommend for the card?
i bet my supply cant handle it also. I appreciate your help and advice

I would at minimum run a Quality 600-650 watt PSU with that card. A quad overclocked past 3GHz is the minimum CPU that can keep up with it.

Can a Corsair 650tx power the card?
