Everything is compatible at a first glace, but I can't find find information on what expansion slots you have.
Please download this program everest and then click motherboard and then motherboard again. Please list the types on expansion slots it provides.

Also just want to make sure your aware of this, you P4 will more then likely bottleneck the card.

I don't see motherboard after download. Thanks for the help. I am at that website and it recommends ATI cards that are compatible with the 8800GTS.

After you download it, run the program and click motherboard and then another motherboard button will come up, click that one as well.

At this time there is no ATI card comparible to the 8800GTS as ATI hasn't released any DX10 cards as of yet.

Do the exact same thing, but scroll down a little further to motherboard Physical Info and copy that information down.

Thank you!

Good you do have the PCI-e slot that whats I was looking for.

Everything is compatible, just want to make you aware of a few things, there isn't a 2nd 6 pin connector on that, you'll probably want a PSU with one as most video cards are more power demanding(or you might want to SLI in the future, though I don't recommend it). The newest cards coming out later this month will even require a 8 pin+6 pin connector (the more pins the more juice it'll provided by the way). So this power supply will hinder your upgrade path. Also your P4 will bottleneck your card, meaning the card won't be able to perform 100% due to the fact that your processor is underpowered and can't sort tasks out fast enough.

James

Yes I already googled it, it'll work fine. The one I saw only had 1 6 pin cable, but if it does have 2x 6pin cables your good. It's a modular power supply, quiet, lots of Amps on the rails and voltages don't fluctuate. What more can you ask for.
