How did you guess?  ;-).  I checked - the motherboard is an Asus
P3B-F.  The manual (found at [1]) says it has an Intel 440BX AGPset

Thanks for sharing about the compatibility - I'd rather get the 64-bit
card and know that I'm not jumping in on the hind tail of the
technology curve.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair
and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.  Instead, it should be
that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet
spirit, which is of GREAT WORTH in God's sight.  For this is the way the
holy women of the past used to make themselves beautiful.
