The GeForce7600 will work on your motherboard, albeit at half the throughput of an 8X slot, but even so, would be far superior to the 6200. The PNY web site recommends at least a 300W power supply for the card...dunno how stable your 300W Antec would be over the long haul...so, you may want to upgrade it at some point.

All 8x AGP cards will work in a 4x AGP slot.

And yes, if you're gaming, it'll completely destroy the 6200. And might even be overkill for WoW and Guild Wars. :)
