If you mean the connection type, yes, the board has one PCI Express x16 slot so the card would work.

If you mean physically will the card fit, based off of what I saw on Intel's website on that board, as long as he doesn't have something in the the PCI slot below it he should be alright.

In your sig it looks like you have the same card, you could always check space requirements that way.
