Will me gaming gainward geforce GTX 460 graphics card fit in this motherboard 

Asked by: Regan
The board is equipped with an industry standard PCI-e 16x connector, so YES your card will fit into this motherboard. Of more consideration will be the case you place the board into (to ensure there is sufficient room for the card) and the power supply you are using to ensure it has sufficient power to power all your devices and your graphics card.

Could I plug the vga cable into the graphics card instead of into the motherboard and still get the best out of the motherboard 

Asked by: Regan
If you have a graphics card that will fit this kit, then 99% of the time it will be better than connecting directly to the motherboard. The exceptions being very old graphics cards that don't run as fast as the on-board values of the motherboard and processor.
