It should work. All motherboards still use PCI slots.

The one thing you may need to worry about is, if you plan on using windows vista or a 64-bit OS, if the drivers are supported by it. What's the make and model of the card? What operating system (OS) do you plan on using it with?

There is a high possibility that your new motherboard will already have a built in Ethernet connection, thus freeing up one of your PCI ports.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
