      Yes, you really don't have to worry about compatibility with your motherboard anymore. You just want to make sure it meets the recommendations for your video card, which you're well above.

      As a little history lesson on the subject, there was a time when some boards had issues with multi-rail vs single-rail power supplies. DFI was particularly known for this. Single rail was the wiser choice and you never had issues with single rail units. You could also have issues with the VGA modular cables and being aware of which rail they were on, so that you weren't overloading a 12V rail. The Powerspec PSU you're looking at is single-rail, by the way.
