Default Rebuilding my computer

I am looking to rebuild my computer. This is what I have looked at so far. Please tell me if these would work together.

Would I be able to keep my Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb Video card? What about my Sound Blaster Audigy LS sound card? Any help would be appreciated.

Should all work together, but what slot types are the cards you want to keep?

If either is PCI-E X16 or PCI, then they will work.

This is a link to the specs of my sound card and video card. Could you tell me if they are going to work with my motherboard? If so, will they work with vista?

The sound card should work if you can find Vista drivers for it.

The graphics card won't work because its AGP. The motherboard you selected only has PCI-E x16 for graphics cards.

How would this be? I need one extremely cheap. I am a poor college kid. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

What's your spending range? And what do you want to do on this computer?

I know that $75 is not very much for a video card at all but Im on a pretty tight budget. What is one of the cheapest video cards that I can buy that isn't a huge piece of crap.
