    do you know if this is a pretty good board? would it be worth the switch just to put a better graphics card in it?

    It's probably ok, but if you already have agp 8x you can still get a pretty good card installed, like a 7800gs.

    Or if you don't want to spend that much a 6800gs would be nice for $225usd

    If your sig is correct, then you have an abit IC7 which is a nice board. I don't think you'll see much advantage to going with pci-express unless you want a top of the line $500-600 card that isn't available in agp.
