Well actually up top where i said 4x/8x...i guess i was wrong. I guess its only 4x becuase when i ran 3dmark03 it said 1x,2x,4x AGP so.....I guess i do need a new mobo. Looking into it i found to mobos that look pretty good. Which one would u get and why?

MSI MS6728-110

or...

ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE

I looked at the review and im seeing great results for overclocking on the msi but none for the asus...One guy using the msi board OC'ed his cpu from 3.0ghz to 4.2ghz!!!!!! WOW!!!! So im leaning twords the msi board

please use the edit button instead of triple posting!

And I had asus p4p800-e deluxe mobo. It doesn't have pci-e but other than that it's a great mobo.

it also can't be GDDR either, the only ram it could be is DDR.

But i would say the MSI is a better board, its also cheaper.

Go with a video card, your mobo is fine for now. Its teh GPU that is holding ya back.

I recomend the albatron K8SLI, its very small and will fit in any case.
Also great costomer support and comes with everything for SLI ready. Dont get a new vid card untill you have more cash for a 6800 or a 7800
