Yup. This is true to the best of my knowledge. If there is an Nivida based AGP card later than the 7000 series, it's a mystery to me.

I would get pci express based motherboard for your graphics card because pci express is a lot better

I think they made some 8600's or something in AGP, but nothing high-end.

Quickest way to find out is to do a search at Nvidia by agp.

Not that I know of. And I'm 99% sure you can't use any kind of converter.

May I recommend it may be time for a new build? Even if it may be an inexpensive basic build.

You can put together a basic PDC build now on websites like Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com for about 215-230. Gigabyte board with I believe Intel's G31 express chipset. PDC E2200 (2.2Ghz @ 800mhz FSB w/ 1Mb L2) and that 7200GS will go just fine with it. pick up a some odd 400W powersupply (I'd suggest at least a decent name brand like ThermalTake) and a S-ATA Harddrive or CD drive because most new motherboards don't support 2 IDE headers. So it's S-ATA of one or both. Grab some RAM (the board I mentioned takes DDR2 Single Channel @ 800mhz max stock [1066 Overclocked]). Get a basic CPU cooler for the E2200 or stick with retail fan (if you buy it boxed) and get some case fans. Don't forget a case.

Much luck on your build; Post Pics; we love to see them 8)

Based off what grantofhell said, this may be a little easier to understand as you seem new to the computer world. Not dismissing that your knowledgeable grant, just saying he might get what you mean.

But whatever the case, you will be happy with a new computer.
Total Cost of the below system should average to about $350. I don't know if you have an OS or not so let us know.

Case: RAIDMAX Scorpio ATX-868WBP
Power Supply: SPARKLE ATX-350PN-B204 350W
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L
CPU: Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz
Memory: SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar SE 320GB
DVD Drive: LG Black 22X DVD Burner
