I HAVE GOT A AMD ATHLON XP 1900 WITH A ASUS 266 FSB AGP PRO / 4X MOTHERBOARD AND 64 MB DDR RADEON 8500LE GRAPHICS WITH TV OUT + DVI WILL IT BE POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE TO A SAPPIRE RADEON 9700 PRO WITHOUT CHANGING THE MOTHERBOARD IF NOT WHAT MOTHERBOARD WOULD YOU CHOOSE.

Yes you can use the Radeon card but not at it's full potential (because it's an AGP 8x card)

Just a comment - I would have thought a 9700 Pro was a touch of overkill with an Athlon XP1900.
