Hello,

I just wanted to know if this graphic's card:

would be compatible with this mother board:

one last thing i wanted to know, was if that card is the same card as this one but just with more video memory:

My goal is to play any game that is out now at max res and setting's. mainly star craft 2 and diablo 3.

thank's.

First card has more Vram then the second card and they are both the same. I don't know if it will. I think you have a clearence problem with what is on the back side of the PCIe slot. I really can't tell.

I know they make a flex adapter that plugs in the slot and the flex cable bends to put the card in another area. From the pic's the hardwear on the back side of the PCIe slot looks to be higher. But I don't trust my eyes half the time.

If it weren't for the piece of hardwear it would mate with that MOBO very well. Maybe someone else can see if it does. Sorry I do wish you good luck on this.

That looks like a pretty high-end motherboard, I don't see them putting in a heatsink that will block a large video card from being used, would just be a dumb design mistake to do that.

Keep in mind you want a beefy power supply to run this, although with the card and motherboard you picked out, I'm guessing you are looking at power supplies in the 800 watt range anyway.
