Or tell me weather it is worth it to buy a AGP Video card or to just replace my motherboard to get PCI-E slots for the great video cards?

Best agp card is a 3850 agp while there was a very limited run of 3870 for the agp but very rare almost nonexistent to be honest. Then there is the overpriced 4650/70 and almost all are ddr2 which suck.

Overall you are better off buying a new board.

Well, if you plan on gaming, then that computer is not really going to do it for you. Do you have an upgrade budget?

What type of ram is your system using? DDR1 or DDR2? If ddr2 then just buy a new or second hand 775 board that has pcie and just change everything onto the new board. Might have to reinstall windows but that isn't to much trouble then pick up a cheap 6450. That will give you hdmi and something that can handle all the new codecs.

Just take a look at the ram and look at what shape the chips are. DDR1 has rectangular chips that you can clearly see the pins while DDR2 and above are square shaped BGA that you don't easily see the pins beneath the chips.
