Your motherboard not only has 1 wire plugger inner thingamajigggy (NIC) it has two

Look for the same card, but a version that says PCI-E instead of AGP. Get whatever is cheaper out of Leadtek or eVGA.

And floppy drives are evil, dont get one, antique technolagy. It's good to have one around just in case though.

Still need them to install SATA drivers. They are not evil, they are a great technology! unfortunetely, it is time for their departure from this earth. Very sad to see them go...

Floppy drive is a floppy drive. You want a 6800GT for $200 or so? Thats kind of a tall order my friend.

So $300? You can get a nice eVGA 6600GT for $180 or so.

Nothing. It's just a good card, better ones have come out, and like any technology, it comes down with age. It's no 6800GT, but it is still rather badass.
