    if you can find the program cpuz it will tell you what kind of graphics interface you have. I'll try to find it.

    Get it here: http://www.cpuid.org/cpuz.php


    run it and then click on the motherboard tab and at the bottom it will tell you your graphics interface (agp or pcie)

    I think that board has AGP

    The 7800 series are not compatible with AGP if I remember correctly.

    Yo how about the Nvidia 7800 GS, it is the best AGP card out there. But it might be a little expensive. Search around for a good price.

    I have the same motherboard and recently upgraded my card from FX 5900XT to a Gainward GeForce 7800GS "BLISS" 512MB. The (second) fastest AGP card out there. You americans get things so cheap!
