Default Upgrading my video card

Hello!
I'm having a question whether the new video card i'm wanting to buy would fit on my motherboard or not.
My motherboard is ASRock ALiveNF6G-GLAN , the video card i'm wanting to buy is nvidia GTX 260. I checked up some links that could help to find it ^^, Also, I checked some websites and found out that there are more thingies for this video card like for example: http://en.colorful.cn/Product/Specif...a-4abfa3e6f715 .
Would the video card (that link) be better than the nvidia one?
Motherboard: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.as...ALIVENF6G-GLAN
Video card: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...tx_260_us.html

I'm not sure these links will help ^^;.
Thanks already! =D

The card should work with your motherboard, it supports PCI express. The video card links you posted both require a PCI express "slot." As to which card is better, someone else could probably give you a more educated opinion. Although I do like the Nvidia card better.

Most cards on the market are built off of what is called a "reference design". The only main difference we see are the stock clocks between manufacturers and the benefits their product might come with (warranty, overclocking tool, etc...)I personally recommend the Evga GTX 260 Core 216. It's really the best for the price to performance ratio.
