Your motherboard and your graphics card can be any combination, you should be able to run Dirt3 with that.

yes, your mobo has a pci express 2.0 X 16. pretty much all newer cards will work.

now i don't know if upgrading from on board 4200 to a hd 6570 is worth it, though.

Just make sure your PSU has enough output for that card and you should be good to go.
