    Would my computer be able to support this video card?
    I'm using Windows XP and use an Intel D865PERL motherboard.
    The comptuer has 2.6 Ghz and 512 ram.

    Is there any other info you need to give me a yes or no answer?(sorry I'm really bad with computer hardware)

    Yes, that mobo has an 8x AGP slot. You might also wish to look at the ATI Radeon 9800XT.

    XT better than PRO? And is ASUS a good brand to buy it from?

    XT is better than pro and Asus are a quality manufacturer.

    Just a note, the card says you need a 300W PSU minumum, but it isn't ture, a 250 works with it. I have a 5900 running in this: P4 2.4, 512MB RAM, 160GB HD, 1 CRDW, 1 DVD, 2 PCI Ethernet cards, 1 SB Live card and only a 250W.

    And it's a nice card too :)
