yeah your 8800 gt will work just fine and i think the solid capacitor board is the same but with solid state capacitor i think its supposed to "save energy" and solid state capacitors last longer but the standard board is fine

Solid state capacitors are better quality and last longer.

I don't like the 256MB 8800GT though. It tanks bad as resolution gets increased, sometimes starting at 1280x1024. Should have bought a 512MB GT or if that was out of budget, an 8800GS.

It's very cheap if you got this deal:

But I'd rather have this (which was cheaper last week)

Take a look at this link:

Dirt at 1280x1024 4xaa:
8800GS 384MB - 32.7fps
256MB 8800GT - 15.0 fps

The 8800GT leads alot of low res tests, but really both seem pretty equally playable. But once res and/or fsaa increases, the 256MB 8800GT falls of playable first.

Keep in mind, I believe the Gigabyte 256MB 8800GT has 700(1400)MHz mem like most 256MB versions.Still nice for $70 AR though, especially if you game at lower res.

I can't see why it would not work on a P35 motherboard. Enjoy the deal; happy gaming.
