Hi, try booting a recent distro on it, and you'll know. Meaning Fedora, Ubuntu... The graphic card is fine though, I can vouch for that. For the mobo, I don't think you'll run into any trouble, as it isn't a 'brand new' model. (Almost two years old? is that right?)

(step 1) Check various hardware compatibility lists for your board.
(step 2) Find the various components that makeup the board. (Eclipse Plus manual) Use Google (etc) to check the Linux compatibility of any components you have doubts about (chipset, NIC, etc).

Today, almost every board works right out of the box.
