The MB has PCIe x16 slots so I believe I should be able to use a modern card.
I am aware that this is going to cause a huge bottleneck as the graphics will be way over-powered relative to the rest of the system. My ultimate goal is to use the card with a brand new build but I can't afford to buy everything right now. I am starting with the graphics card because that is the component on my current (2006) system that has failed.
Thanks in advance.

Yes, but i would only try 2.0 cards, not 2.1
Meant no there is no reason it shouldn't work. Without knowing if your mobo is pcie version 1.0 or 2.0 nvidea 2.0 cards would be safest.
