Would my motherboard with a compatibility score of 5.8 be a huge reduction in performance compared to my present GPU? Everything else is a 8 or higher.

This card needs at least a 450W psu.
+This Gpu would have pretty huge bottleneck with your processor so it would be a waste of money without upgrading the Cpu.
