Yes, it will work. The mobo chipset has nothing to do with the card's operation. I am running an Nvidia chipset with an ATI card.

Ya you can do it..

Just because the board supports DDR2, doesn't mean it won't work with a GDDR3 9600gt

It still works

just disable the onboard vga. it might cause problems if you don't. (its a bios setting) but it might also just disable itself, i've had that work for me.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
