Windows 7: Is Radeon HD 6870 Video Card compatible w/ ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo MB?

Is Radeon HD 6870 Video Card compatible w/ ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo MB?

I am looking for something to run 2x DVI and HDMI TV all at the same time. Can 6870 do that? I currently have HD5570 and it can only do 2 monitors at a time.

Also is $80 decent for a **USED** 6870 or is there something better that I should be looking at for $80 to run 3 displays?

If there is something better, I would like to make sure there IS a fan. Not interested in fanless.

(EDIT: Seems theres a couple different versions of the 6870, this is the version I am looking at Radeon HD 6870 Video Card | system components | St. Catharines | Kijiji)

As long as you have a PCI-E x16 Slot in that motherboard (In which case it does), then it will work.

If you're looking at used cards, why not move up a generation and look at the HD 7870 or even the 7770. Both should be available used for under $100.

I pretty sure that my old 7770 would run 3 monitors, and if it would, the 7870 definitely will.
