Yes your computer will support it, but there is a video card X1600Pro 256MB for $109.99 that is better than X800.

X1600Pro 256MB DDR2

thats the idea, if they dont have the 1800 and the 1600 is crap... why get it? supposedly the x800 is the best i can get without spending 600$ or something >.>

Dude listin pat... your motherborad doesnt support X1800 Card. that is becuase its PCIE, you only have APG 8x.. Meaning there diffrent slots that means that it wont work... now I would get the X1600Pro 256.. or you can just get a 6800GS and try to unlock it to 16 pipelines

SP2 kinda sucked when it first came out.. but now that it's been updated a lot, it's pretty good.
