i wouldnt recommend getting an AGP graphics card right now, its best to invest in a new motherboard, then get an new graphics card.
AGP is not worth getting, and i think they cost more than pci-e ones since the AGP are limited.

getting a motherboard is what i recommend.
but seeing what your old motherboard supports, it would seem like you would need a new build since the new motherboards doesnt support the ones you have.
so you could either...
1. start the new build if you have the money
2. save the graphics card till you could use it
3. give it away
4. or sell it, and do something with that money
