I'm planning to upgrade my videocard to a Sapphire4650 1GB DDR2 128 bit,... I'm not sure if my motherboard can support it. Will it? Take not the Sapphire4650 is an AGP card. Also when I get the new videocard, I'm gonna play on 1024x768 resolution on most of my games

Not the agp no, you have a full size PCIex16 slot and no agp slot. Open the case and check again though with the picture I'm posting below.

However according to your manual it runs only at 1x speed! So I have no idea of it would even work with a PCIe graphic card or how much it would bottleneck. I would buy a card from local store so you can try and return if it doesn't work. A 5670 (about $60 should be a nice upgrade if it works!)

You have a point, but the 4650 performs well in games and it's cheap! I'll try to get a 5570 if I can..
