You weren't specific about the model, Gigabyte offers about a dozen boards based on the B75. There's no reason you can't use an Nvidia card but if you're concerned about the Crossfire support, choose one of the other models.

✔ Best Answer
Your VGA card will work as long as the mobo you buy supports the card type regardless of CPU. I am assuming the Q600 is PCI X 2.0 - so for optimal performance of the VGA card you would want at least that or higher.

The AMD crossfire X is specific to the AMD family video cards (RAEDON), so you wouldn't be able to add anymore Q600 cards or utilize nvidia SLI (Nvidia's version of crossfire X) to have multiple nvidia cards installed on the system. So, if you wanted to utlize 2 (or more depending on the board) video cards, they would need to be matching AMD Raedon's.

Thanx for the reply. My nearby Store doesn't have this motherboard right now, but they have suggested me Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H motherboard. They claim it also have same specs like one you have suggested.
