Default New graphics card compatibility issues?

Just wanna make sure there won't be any issues with a new graphics card.

Short story is, my friend has an graphics card he doesn't use anymore, its a good deal, I want it.

The card is a HIS HD 4870 IceQ 4+(http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-414.shtml)

I'm currently running:
Motherboard: Asus M4A785-M
Processor: AMD Dual Core Athlon X2 245
Power Supply: Rosewill RV2-600
Optical Drive: LiteOn 24x Internal CD/DVD Writer
RAM: 2x 2GB GSkill DDR2
Hard Drive: 750 GB Seagate 7200 RPM

Everything should work well.

It has 1 PCI-E 2.0 x 16 , and that card is pci-e so no problem. Website says it requires a 500 watt psu with 2x 6 pin connectors. You have a 600w with 2x 6 pin (one has a 6 +2) .

You should be good, enjoy your new card.

make sure if your old GPU is an nvidia card that you delete the drivers for it so there wont be any driver issues when you boot the ATI card.

Actually NO MATTER WHAT you need to clear out the old drivers when swapping for another card.
