Check www.pricewatch.com - they are the best place to find hardware at a good price.

If the slot is AGP 2.0 compliant it will. If it's not then no. There were a very small number of 2.0 AGP 2x mobo's produced though... so I would be for taking Micro's advise...
AGP 3.0 is the 8X version enabling .8v cards...

good luck
