I would go with another card. If you upgrade you mobo to a pci-e, you most likely would need a new processor becuase your current one might not fit.

Pentium 4 3.0 ghz
nvidia 7900gt 265mb video card

2 gigs of ddr (3200) ram

not true. Basically, the only reason to CHANGE to PCI-e is if you want a card that is past a 6800 series. You shouldn't just switch mobos because you want a PCI-e card instead of an AGP.
