The info you provided is not sufficient.

You need to find if there is a AGP slot one your motherboard and the format of agp slot, x4 or x8. If you do not have manual, you can use a program called Aida32 click here to find out. It will give all info about your system.

Your motherbaord may be only has 4x agp slot, a lot of modern graphics card only work on 8x slot, even it works on x4 agp slot, the performance may suffer.

Another questions? What card you want to use and how much you want to spend?

So by the specs i would say u could install the cards but you wouldnt get the full benefit from them.

your motherboard has 2x agp card, some 9600 class card support 2x slot, see here click here, but you may not able to get full advantage, so a cheaper ATI9200 or FX5200 class of card may be a better option. 9200 class card even has PCI version.

A ATI 9200 £49 click here, Fx5200 £33 click here

FX5200 one should be £39 click here, spec see click here#
