Re: compatible vid card for my foxconn P4M9007MB MOBO
You will be fine with nVidia 9800 ! thats perfect for your mobo.
Youst make sure you have enough of memory to, those games you talking about needs a lot of memory to work perfect.
I suggest you install at least 3GB memo, or even better 4GB. Thats the maximum of memory you can have on that mobo.

The best thing I can suggest is to get an ATI radeon graphics card. You don't say what your Operating system is. The Sapphire Radeon HD3650 is Vista certified and will fit the mobo you describe (ie AGP x8) The Radeon is made by the same company that makes the Processor in your Mobo, so compatibility should not be a problem.
Well... Windows Vista can be installed on anything. I'm not familiar with your particular PC, but there are two ends to the problem.
A) Plug in to PC end.
Here there are the PCI-bus, and PCI-E standards. PCI-E comes in many flavors, a tiny tiny connection (1 lane), and a wide connection (>1 lanes? don't remember 8?).
Open your PC box and look at the slot closest to the CPU, that is typically the graphics card expansion slot. Take a picture (if you have a camera), note if this slot is "different" from the other slots... it is likey to be. Then you can google PCI-E and PCI connectors to see if you can match them up. If you have a *NEW* pc it's likely you have a PCI-E bus. This is the *faster* solution.
2) Card to monitor.
There are multiple ports on many of the new PC graphics cards... from oldest to newest
VGA - This is a DB-9 type connector... looks like a oval but is longer on one side than the other. (i.e. not a rectangle). This is the oldest standard.
DVI - This is an oval connection.. You can get DVI to VGA adaptors, and some video cards come with them. This will have a series of pins and a "+" cross pin connection on it.
HDMI -- The coolest and typically includes sound for direct connection to HDTV. But your monitor may not have this type of port.
So if your looking for a card, look for one that is either PCI-E or PCI based on how old your PC is, and also look at what types of video output connectors it has.. VGA/DVI or HDMI.
Most of the newer cards will have HDMI and DVI output with a VGA adaptor. But some don't.
Then... there is the case of a particular card having "issues" with the game you want.
If you have time... pick a particular card, then google for "my favorite game" [replace the game with your game name" and the video card with the word problems... to see if anyone has had problems with that particular combo.
(I never do that... :()
Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.
