The Difference is what the slot looks like, most boards have only either AGP or PCI-e or none but there are some AsRock boards that have both AGP or PCI-e, but before you decide to buy a new video card, you need to figure out whether you have PCI-e or AGP or just a PCI (use CPU-Z)

Thats a modern chipset, so I can guarantee you it has a PCI-e but there are some people who don't listen to me so heres proof:
Intel® Desktop Board DG33FB Overview

so get PCI-e Video Cards, now whats your budget and you plan on playing?

Newegg.com - ECS N8600GT-512DZ GeForce 8600 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

If you can take a rebate (this is way better than the 8600gt though):
Newegg.com - MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

but if you can afford an 8800gs it blows either of 8600 cards to bits:
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88SFDFU GeForce 8800 GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

EDIT: Don't double post and I didn't see your post just now until I hit submit, so you really don't need the firepower of an 8600gts or 8800gs, get an 8600gt or HD2600xt

PCI-E is a newer, faster interface

anyway, the 3650 will completely blow the cards you listed away:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100236L Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

it's also quite low on power, and probably the best you'll get for the money under $80

Quit double posting and use the edit feature in the future

you can't use AGP because theres no AGP port on your PC, simple as that

EDIT: Apok, isn't the 8600gt faster than the HD3650?
