yes. Your motherboard doesn't have onboard video support so an additional graphics card is needed. You have an 8x AGP bus slot so get a good video card (geforce 6600GTor 6800) in there and play some awesome games.

Buy a graphics card that has a decent heatsink and Fan if you want to play games but if not just buy a cheaper one
