Hi Redman22 :)
Yes the card is compatible with the MB but there are other factors that you need to consider and two very important ones are is your PSU (power supply unit) compatible, one particular brand of this card requires a PSU with a minimum of 600W output and a 6 pin pci-e connection from the PSU, the other and this is only one example you must have a minimum of 2GB of Ram.
Can you post as many of your system details as possible so that we can check them out for you, this includes the size of your case micro tower, mini tower etc this is to make sure that you have enough room inside the case.

Thanks for the reply, here are the rest of my specs:

Processor:
Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 930 @ 2.80GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory:
4096MB RAM
Hard Drive:
1000 GB
Operating System:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.100618-1621)

About the Power Supply Unit, is there a way to check it without opening the Computer?
Also, the case micro tower and mini tower what is that exactly? (sorry im kind of a newbie in that kind of stuff lol)

Thanks for the specs, there are no compatibility issues which is good, unfortunately there is no other way to find the PSU details without removing the side of the case unless of course you purchased the system from a supplier that has a website where the full specifications can be found.
Some information about the different types and sizes of PC case, its basic but you will get the idea; http://en.wikipedia....i/Computer_case
To find the PSU details you must first shut down and disconnect any cables from the PC, remove the side, if you need to reach inside first take anti static precautions by touching a bare metal part of the case, write down the PSU details brand and model name or number and the power output, carefully reassemble your system and then post your findings here, let us know if we can assist with any of the above.

You should only need to disconnect the Power Cable and take the side off, also there should be no need to touch anything inside.

Looking for something like this:
