what would be best is to get a new mobo for the price of the card. The AGP slot is bieng phased out so you may want to update.

Ace is right.. AGP cards are now more expensive then PCI-e because most companys stoped making AGP cards.. You can get a average Mobo for 60 dollars AM2 and get yourself a AM2 socket cpu for 70 dollars and a PCI-e card for say 170 and you got yourself a machine.. If you cant afford that, I'd recoomend you save up and wait.. it will be worth it at the end.. you dont want to rush and regret something..

just my two cents..
