This was my own fault for not knowing enough about my computer and the slots graphics cards use, but I think it's about time I upgrade the motherboard anyway. AGP will probably be obsolete before long, so I'll just upgrade my motherboard now instead of having to do it eventually further down the line.
I've been looking around on Newegg and this is the motherboard I found that would probably be best suited for me without spending a ton of money: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130503
After researching a bit more, this motherboard, as well as most others I looked at, have a Socket T (LGA 775) CPU socket. My processor is a Pentium 4, so I assumed it'd be compatible as it says LGA 775 is for Pentium 4 processors. However, I was reading up on Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_t ) and noticed that the LGA 775 supports Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.800 GHz). My processor is a 2 GHz Pentium 4.
There lies one of my questions. The LGA 775 wouldn't work with my processor, would it? If no, I'm in a dilemma. I don't want to send back this graphics card and get a AGP; I want to upgrade my motherboard. It needs a PCI-E slot, at least 3 PCI slots, and a CPU socket for a Pentium 4 2 GHz (I think this is Socket 468, refer to that Wikipedia link above).
I would really appreciate some help and will be researching this myself more, but professional help would be great.
