yes and no. that card, as long as its single will work with that motherboard. however, if you want to use multiple cards you will need a crossfire enabled motherboard. SLI is a NVIDIA setup. ATI cards will work with either brand CPU you just need a crossfire board to recognize dual ATI cards, otherwise you will only be able to run one video card.

A general rule that saves headaches.............stay away from NVidia chipset motherboards. If you are going Intel, use an Intel chipset motherboard. Only time you need an NVidia chipset with LGA775 is if you need SLI support, or plan on using onboard video only.

Agreed, you should stay away from Nvidia chipsets unless you want SLI. If you have a Core 2 setup and want SLI, you are stuck with Nvidia. However, if you are going Core ix, the Intel chipsets often allow for both SLI and Crossfire, but you should check first to make sure.
