Default Dell Dimension 8200 Motherboard Upgrade

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 w\ a p4 2.0 ghz proc. I want to buy dell's newish 24" lcd monitor, but i'm going to need something a bit stronger than my nvidia geforce gti 64mb card for the higher dvi resolutions. problem is, it looks like i'll pretty much need an sli card, but my motherboard only supports agp 4x, sooo--what's a good "economical" motherboard upgrade that will support something like the eVGA Geforce 6600GT.

thanks guys!

You need to replace your motherboard, case, power supply and opearting system if you want to upgrade your graphic card.

If it's a dell copy it wont work on other PC's.

Yeah, you almost need to build a new PC.

Well, let's see. You either buy a new case, new expensive proprietary motherboard, and new expensive proprietary PSU, or just build your own computer.

IMHO the latter is better.
