I looked up that model number. Your motherboard supports AGP 8x, so this is probably the BEST card on that budget that can play ANYTHING:

That card seems great.

If it does use up too much power though, you can always upgrade the PSU rather cheaply,
though I'm sure you'll have one thats fine.

He should, the 6800NU 128 isn't a beast, but it does a good job.
