Motherboard/Graphics card compatability

is there a website that will tell me if a certain motherboard is compatible with a certain graphics card.

Thanks for that Technotiger I maybe should have explained myself a bit better.

I'm looking for somewhere that will tell me if I can put an NVidia FX5200 in an old Pentium 3 that the wee boy is using toget him started on computers

Hmmm, right - yes that card should work with the old P3, P3 being part of that cards minimum spec.

i see the fx5200 comes as an agp as well as a pci express.
if it's the agp card then as technotiger says it should be ok as a pentiun 3 board will be agp.

It does if the motherboard sports an AGP slot and IF that AGP slot is fast enough.

Do you know what motherboard you are using.
