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

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 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It has Better cooling. The card listed is Factory OC. So, it will run even faster.

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

i5 3470
MSI GTX 660
G.skill 8Gb 1600Mhz
Forgot the Mobo's model :lol:
