OK in no way am I recommending any of these boards because it makes no sense especially if you are not just replacing a mb. but,

Go look at computer stores for old used computers. I ran the 9700 pro 8 years ago and AGP has been dead for a long time.

My 6-year-old gaming rig runs the ABIT IC7: Intel Chipset, OC'ing abilities and AGP8X. Was pretty spiffy back in the day, if you can find one, I suggest getting it...i've had nothing but a reliable 6 years with mine.

EDIT: eBay

I feel almost obtrusive saying this, I know what you are asking. Getting one of those boards for an upgrade doesn't make much sense. seems you are wanting to keep the card and upgrade everything else, when in reality you will be bottlenecking yourself upgradewise by staying with that card. yes, it's a decent card, but your future upgrades will not go far. you can get relatively inexpensive 9 series cards, and medium to upper grade motherboards with PCI-E 2.0 for very low prices. Just my opinion dude
