I couldn't find your exact mobo when I went looking for it. But I found one similar, I think, if your board will handle 8x AGP then you should be OK. But how big is your power supply? When you put a bigger video card like that in it takes a lot of power. If your power supply is to small or too cheaply built you can have all kinds of problems with your computer... :thumbsup:

well, as i said my power supply is a 400 wats one, and i dunno if necesarily maters but its size is around 10x15x7centimeters, and my mobo has an 8x agp.

and man, now that you say i cud have problems with a cheap PS, sometimes my computer randomly doesnt wanna start up when i press the on/off button, i know theres power because the side fan starts spining, but just for a second then it completely shuts down along with the rest of the system. maybe i gotta buy a new case with a new better power supply along with it. i got 100 bucks on my pocket rite now to go waste in a new case(i say waste because all of my pc improving labor is for video games :thumbsup:) u just tell what kind of power suply i gotta buy, thats what really matters and i ll seek for a deluxe case with that built in PS.


PD: how do you think that my computer(described up there) will do with the latest video games? and what about the future, i dunno much about this i can just wonder or ask you.

sorry about the extended quote -.-

Anyway, I was just checking out the specifications for your motherboard. I can't find any documentation that says it even takes an AGP card. Do you currently have an AGP card? If that is the case, then I am looking at the wrong manual.

I would recommend that you look into a new keyboard. It appears that shift keys are broken.
