    the asus probably has pci/e 16 slot but your videocard uses agp so not compatible. most likely any board using core2 duo will not have agp slot for your videocard.

    both those motherboards use PCI-e and both use ddr2, so youll have to get a new graphics card and ram as well. and If your getting a new mobo, cpu, gpu, and ram, you might as well build a whole new computer since thats most of the cost right there.
