Nope. You need an AGP 6800GT, or you need to get a new board.

It will not fit, you have an AGP motherboard. the PCI-Express video card will physically not fit, you need a PCI-Express slot on the motherboard.

Actually buying a new Graphics Card that is AGP would be better for you. Upgrading to a new motherboard is probably around the same cost (including your friends GPU) as buying a AGP version. And 2nd hand computer parts are dodgey.
