no that board is a PCI-EX and not a AGP. look for a PCI-EX card. the 6600gt will play almost any game out today at high settings but!!! since you'll only be using 1 card i would suggest even geting just the 6800nu. good brands are:

MSI
BFG
LEADTEK
dunno about ASUS for video cards.

if you are going with 3500+ get the venice core. It should be that much more expensive. and yes newegg has it.

Yeah I have an ASUS A8N-SLI and it isn't bad, but certainly not the best. I'd get the MSI or Gigabyte board. And definitely get a PCI-E 6600 GT.

They only have the venice core with OEM builds.. and I'd rather buy retail because of the warranty.

I've decided on this card:
