Well with that video card i presume it's a PCI-e card and not a AGP card. Which means any PCI-E graphic's card will work on that motherboard. Although that cpu may hold back most of today's graphic cards.

The 9600 GT maybe your best card that will work for you without the cpu holding it back (at least to much anyways. )

Anything higher and you'll need a more powerful cpu (like the core i5 and phenom II) to fully use the latest cards.
