Short answer, Yes it will work just fine on that motherboard.

The PSU should be fine also, just double check your case to make sure the card will fit before buying. I expect it will but its always best to check these things.

Excellent point, my HD 6950 did fit my M4A785-M but I had to do some major re-routing of wires and abandon the HDD slot at the end of the video card slot.
