Your motherboard dosent support it but all cards i know of are backwards compatible. Many cards can use the pcie 2.0 but its said only extremely high end cards ever need that bandwidth but yes if you wish to use a pcie x16 2.0 card on your motherboard is should work

I have to agree with the above, not completely positive but I've read that all the PCI-E cards seem to be backwards compatible.

Same thing with the different AGP versions.

The 8500gt is pretty old now so is the Radeon X1650. if i was givin the choice seeing as how similar they are in preformance i would go with the nvidia because i have had to many problems with ati cards. but i see the ones u picked out dont have external power requirements. is it because your power supply wont do it or u just picked those out?
for a newer card that dosent cost to much and dosent require external power lookup the Nvidia 9500GT its faster than both those cards , newer series (9 Series), and as also stated it dosent require external power, and since its newer when ever they stop support for the 8 series the 9500gt will still be supported and get newer drivers but it will be a few years before that happens but as said check out the nvidia 9500gt , i own a 8800gt and a 9600gt and they r both fantastic specially the price to performance ratio with the 9600gt

Well mind telling me the GPU you recommend , what's the price? my budget is about RM350 only that's the reason i choose those.

if get a 9500gt u want to get one with GDDR3 and 512mb newegg has an ECS 9500gt for $64.99 i was trying to find a card for sub $70 before and i considered the 9500gt after hearing many good things about it but in the end i went with my MSI 9600GT OC great card and it could get crazy ocs compared to other peoples 9600gt's lol but for u i recommend the ECS 9500GT 512MB GDDR3 can come close to a stock 9600gt maybe beat it if u overclock it if the rest of your system can do it you could play crysis (with latest drivers and latest patches) on high settings at 1024x768 maybe
