All of those are compatible.

If you don't mind me asking, what will this be used for? That graphics card you listed is basically useless.

Besides normal usage I do some light gaming but nothing too graphic intensive but I do watch a lot of movies and videos so is there another graphics card that would be better?

Probably. What is your video card budget?

If your not wanting to spend much more than the card you have listed I would recommend this card...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-829-_-Product

Your not gonna do any extreme gaming with it but it should run most games on medium settings.

For a graphics card I wouldn't mind spending $80-$90.

This is a good card. It's a little more than what you wanted to spend ($99.99 after mail-in rebate) but might be worth the extra money.

Blech. Don't buy a DX10 card, especially at that price.

I suggest a HD 5750, or better yet a GTS 450. Shop around and look for a sale and you should be able to get either for about $100. If you really don't want to go $10 over budget, get the 9800 gt, but either card I listed will outperform it, use less power and has DX 11.
