dude, thats old mobo and i guess you have old cpu
it will work, but your mobo pci-e will --slightly-- limit the performance, and i am not sure your CPU and GPU is powerful enough to handle gtx 660
anyway, it will work
please list what your parts are

Here are my specs:
AMD FX4100 3.6ghz processor
Gigabyte M68Mt-S2 motherboard
AMD Radeon HD 6570

Thats very good.
Everything will be fine.
But you should OC your FX a bit to decrease performance issue.
If you don't mind then I would suggest you this card is
It has Better cooling. The card listed is Factory OC. So, it will run even faster.

what about bf3?

That card runs me over 50fps in BF3.
But in Mutliplayer you need a Good CPU.
Because MP puts load on CPU.
Edit: My system
MSI GTX 660
G.skill 8Gb 1600Mhz
Forgot the Mobo's model
