Yes, its a good card and will be supported by your motherboard. Good purchase indeed.

The main question is, what power supply do you have? if it is a cheap and weak power supply you may fry your components. Be sure to have a minimun 450W PSU of a good brand, just like seassonic, antec or corsair. If you have an unknown branded PSU, do NOT buy a GPU.

Yes, that card is good for your system and your motherboard does support it.

Can you give us a specific model? Knowing power rating only doesn't really help much

If you don't mind waiting then wait. If you want to buy now, buy now. HD8000 is probably due out in June or something. That's 5 months away

I really think you should replace the power supply. Cooler Master doesn't have one of the best psu and their lower end are even worse. It's usually overrated and has high ripple. If you're budget is low, get an Antec VP-450 or corsair CX430
