If I'm looking at the right board here it looks like it has an AGP slot for the graphics card. I would not recommend running windows 7 on this setup. Am I wrong and can you update with the complete specs of your system?
If I am looking at the right board there probably aren't windows 7 drivers for a lot of your hardware.

I can't find a windows 7 driver and I found a vista driver that might work but then it states elsewhere thats it for xp or lower so I'm not going to trust that.

This is the cheapest compatible card I could find with w7 drivers. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's possible, I had the same chipset with the onboard graphics chip.

What I had to do was grab the Vista driver and Force Feed windows 7 the driver. The only problem is, windows aero won't run. So if you aren't a fan of Aero, then try finding a vista driver, XP drivers wont cut it....

You should seriously consider upgradeing your motherboard, there are lots of cheap mobo's out there that will run Win7 with a PCI-E card.

A $40 card I think is a easier solution than changing out a mobo. What's the point of a mobo change + card especially since it might be time to just upgrade the whole thing with a new build.

According to the NVidia web site there are win 7 drivers available so it looks like you solved your own question.

P.S. I still don't recombine running win 7 on this. ;^)
