    Hi, im really having trouble understanding what you are meaning here.If possible could you clarify a bit your language (dont use "no" use "know" if its the case). Its really easy to find out if any card will fit in your mobo, find out what type of slot it uses for graphic use (in this case PCI-Express x16), then find a Graphic card that uses that uses that same slot (Pci-express x16), any online store should give you that information in the specication of both mobos and GPU.

    With the PCI express 16X you have on your MOBO you can find a really big range of cards, so you should do a budget and then look for the card that gives you the most performance out of that budget.

    yes pci express x16 is better than agp since it runs at 8x ddr2 at high frequency's is better than normal ddr ram that motherboard is ok for gaming but it doesnt matter a lot since motherboards don't make a huge difference in performance so its ok and yes that video card will fit on you're motherboard anything that says pci express x16 will fit
