They will, mine does.

You'll need a good cooler though, in order of efficiency, Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme, Tuniq Tower 120 or a Zalman 9700.

Get the 512MB GT if your budget goes that far or if you're not in a hurry wait for the new 8800GTS 640MB or if your budget is large Asus and Palit (iirc) have just released their 8800 1GB cards
