We are putting a video card and 16GB of RAM into a computer. Here is the motherboard:

Here is the video card:

And the memory:

Will they all just be plug and play? The PSU is 500W and the video card may require the extra power connector, plus newest nVidia drivers but will it all play nicely together?

The CPU is by no means the greatest one, Core i3-2120 (3.3GHz), so will this bottleneck the GPU at all?

It isn't my computer but I just want to get the thoughts of others on OCN before I go adding the new parts in today.

Thanks,

Awesome motherboard (not biased at all)

That's a nice balanced system and will work perfectly assuming none of the hardware arrives faulty.

I concur with the previous two commenters. That PSU is plenty enough for a single card setup.
