The Dual Core will work ok for the MB but the one which is recommended is the Quad Core 2500K.

WARNING concerning that motherboard.

3 (x16, x8, x4) (Due to the limitation of the chipset, when the PCI_E5 has been installed with a PCIE x4 device, 2 eSATA ports, 2 onboard front USB 3.0 connectors, 2 PCI slots and 1 USB 3.0 rear IO port (the top USB 3.0 port at the side of audio jacks) will become unavailable.)

sdawson779,

Did you see my warning above ??

I would decide on another motherboard first and then pick out a video card.

The total build is a Generation II machine so is out-dated to begin with.

You are throwing your money away as it stands now.
