Difference in AGP connections:AGP. There's AGP 1x, AGP 2x, AGP 4x, and AGP 8x - they are all keyed differently, but there is an AGP Pro Universal socket which does 1x, 2x, and 4x.

Not sure if AGP 8x sockets are backwards compatible.

Is this your GPU? 9200.

Quoted: *Speed is always backwards compatible, Signalling voltages can be incompatible, Connectors and slots are keyed so that you can only use electrically compatible equipment.*

The manual you provided shows your mobo supports 4x/8x 1.5V AGP card (3.3V is for your PCI bus), 2 lugs (single key) card indicates 1.5V while 3 lugs (2 keys) indicates 1.5V/3.3V that the card can operate on.( operating speed 1x to 8x depends on the signalling voltage) more infos click here

To cut a long story short ,the card you're trying to describe click here will fit & work in your mobo.
