I need a new graphics card, but I am confused whether it will be compatible or not, is there an easy way to check?

My motherboard - GA-G41MT-S2P

The graphics card i'm thinking of getting - GeForce GTX 460

Stick it in there.

If it works, great! If not, then it's not compatible.

In all seriousness though, there will be so few incompatibility cases that it's untrue, since PCIex16 is backwards compatible.

I have never heard incompatibility issues of graphic card with main boards.

But poor OS driver software of the graphic cards is a very usual problem.
