That GPU may be a little to much for that board. Also requires 200 watts of extra power. You be better of with some a little less.

The card will be fine on that board. You won't see it's full potential though due to the slow dual core you currently have, those cards really need a fast quad to get the most out of them.

Alright. I just need it for regular gaming so, it should be cool. Otherwise i'll just move it into my Main PC, which is;
SI P55-GD65 iP55 Socket 1156 Gigabit Lan 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
Intel i5 760 2.8GHz Socket 1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

That would be a much better idea than stick it in with the dual core.
