It's not necesary to change the mobo. You can install your new graphic card in the PCIex16 slot.
Don't forget to enter bios and disable the onboard vga.

2)AGP & P2P bridge configuration
3)Primary Graphic adapter: Select PCIe

H Henry,

It's me again, i can't find the path you mencioned on the bios, the farest i can go is to "Advanced", then i have, amongst other options, one that says "PCIPnP", under this option, i have "Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA", that at the moment is set to "Yes". In the case this is the right thing to do, do i install the graphic card first, enter the bios and set it to "No"?

Tanck you for your time,

Ok, I forgot to write the second step.

Enter Bios
1)Advanced (Menu)
2)Chipset
2)AGP & P2P bridge configuration
3)Primary Graphic adapter: Select PCIe

Hi Henry,

This time i got it, was hiden on that chipset option, thank you. I am still wondering if beyhond the 1Gb memory that i am thinking to add, i could obtain a better performance with a new mobo and a new cpu. You know, i am adicted to Second Life game, i have a race bike there, and there is a guy that i want to kick his ass. Anyway, thanks again.
