Default PC Upgrade Help

Rome3789]Ok so ive been upgrading my PC little by little but now im stuck after buying the video card listed below. When i searched for a video card to work with my current motherboard i must have read something wrong cuz this video card cant fit my current board. So my question to all the smart computer geniuses out there can u recommend a board that will fit this card. Maybe one that can support 4G of ram, 2-3 Hard drive slots and two disk drives. Also a case with or without power supply which ever will get me the best value, CPU, and Capture card with HD. BTW this PC build is not for gaming or overclocking. Purely for multimedia purposes. Thanks

Here are some pic of what i want everything to based off of.



Spec's from box


I would like my new upgrade to follow the system requirements please thanks again.

What you have there is a PCI-E Graphics card. All the latest and greatest motherboards will accept this card. Your motherboard probably has an AGP slot.

How much do you want to spend on the rest of the parts?

You don't have to get the same exact mobo as me. I mean there are plenty of others out there that may do you better.
