    work with my
    GIGABYTE GA-MA780G-UD3H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard


    Please let me know thanks.
    And if it does how do I get a operating system on it? Just boot from disc or do I have to do some BIOS stuff?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Yes, they should work fine together.

    I'm assuming you have a PSU, CPU, RAM and Optical Drive as well?

    To install an Operating System, you must go into your motherboard's BIOS settings and make sure you CD/DvD drive is set as the 1st boot device. It will prompt you to boot from CD/DvD and press the key that it asks. Follow through the setup and it should complete flawlessly. :)
