Yes, your motherboard actually does contain an AGP 8x VGA interface. (ASUS reference is at http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=12&l3=31&model=179&modelmenu=1 AND http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=12&l3=31&model=179&modelmenu=2.) This means that the video card you replace the All in Wonder with must meet that specification unless you are prepared to switch out the board.
However, as the card you have indicated above is a PCIE x16 card, that may represent additional compatibility options. (The reference for this card is here: http://ati.amd.com/products/radeonx1300/aiw2006pcie/specs.html). This is a bit confusing, given that the motherboard specs indicate an AGP 8x interface. There is the indication on the "modelmenu=2" page that the MB includes 5 PCI expansion slots, but there is no mention of any PCIE x16 interface.
It is often best to return to the site of the manufacturer, or a respected seller, to check for compatibility with the specific brand and model of your PC. This would likely be the best approach, and if you would like for me to help with that, please post back with the information.

No. There is no software to change pci-e speeds. You would need a board already set up for pci-e2 to get the top speeds. Most pci-e2 graphics cards are backwards compatible but they will run at the slower speed. Hope this helps.

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.
Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.
Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.
Good luck with your new card M8!

First, your RAM is already maxxed out and it is only DDR. See:
Secondly, PCI-E 2.0 is backward compatible with 1.0 slots.
The RAM on the graphics card doesn't matter as long as the card is compatible. As far as how much...if you can afford 1GB, great!
ATI or nVidia? That's personal preference. I have had both and was happy with both. Other manufacturers use ATI and nVidia chips and market them under their own name. Galaxy, XFX, EVGA, and others. Here are some mid-range boards from Tiger Direct:
You don't say how fast your processor is. You may be better off going for a new board or computer.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for using Fixya.
