Well, if This is your mobo, and the card is an AGP, then yes it will work..

Don't see why not. Both are AGP. Make sure u disable the onboard gfx (if u need to do this to make the 7800 work) that might cause a few probs otherwise.

No idea what kinda power the card needs just make sure that u have a decent enough PSU, and if need be make sure that u plug the power cable into the card too if it needs it.

I just upgrade my PSU from 350w to 500w i hope thats enough. Also it seems that when i boot my pc up with my new card it will boot up but my monitor wont come on its like it stays in sleep mode. Right now i have my old card my ati radeon 9800xt and it works fine with no problems. How do i find my onboard gfx?

If ur useing another card on it then dont worry it shud be fine

Also its the 12v rating u need to be wary of. PSU have a 12v rating , sometimes 2 or 4 etc, gfx cards need certain AMP ratings on the PSU to work.

You sure you are installing the right ones, ie the ones ur OS needs and not the 8800 series driver.
