Was pulling apart my old PSU dead computer. I noticed I had a Radeon 9000 128mb card circa 2001. Is it worth using that card on an i7-930 with a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 X58 ATX Motherboard? Or is the stock Mobo graphics better?

I'm assuming the mobo will perform better.

That card is AGP, doesn't fit on newer mobos. Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R doesn't have onboard video from what I know.

On the off chance the card is actually PCI (not PCI-E), it should work, using generic VGA drivers. It's only use would be to give your system a display.

It would be in your best interest to purchase a new graphics card. A Radeon 9000 will not provide you with the same experience that even spending a few dollars will provide. Also, the possiblity of incompatibility is a concern.
