Looking for a good modern intel motherboard to support AGP
Sorry, thats an oxymoron. There are no modern (good or otherwise) motherboards supporting AGP on the Intel side. All new Intel (or new nVidia) chipsets only support PCI-E, and the newest Intel and nVidia chipsets are basis of any good modern motherboard.
Yes, there are solutions based on VIA chipsets or older Intel or nVidia chipsets, but I advice everybody wanting to buy a good modern system to stay away from them.
Sorry, but your existing graphics card should go on ebay, if your friends offer to little.
