    No - the motherboard doesn't matter as long as there's a PCIe X16 slot. That's probably the best card you'll get in that price range. Should play all games at medium or better settings up to 1080p.

    That is one incredibly outdated list. Any modern (last 5 years) GPU will work as long as your power supply is up to the task.

    One more piece of advice - get 2GB more RAM. That will help smooth out modern games.
