I don't believe so. Both those video cards look to be PCI-E format whereas the motherboard only supports AGP.

To answer your question.  No you can't attach either of these video cards to your mother board.  Both these cards are PCI/Express which is a different  bus to your boards AGP.

Your motherboard only supports 4 x AGP so you won't be getting the most out of a top of the range 8 x AGP card.

The best AGP graphics card on the market is the Nvidia 7800 GS OC

You can check it out at   http://www.bfgtech.com/7800GS_256.html

The difference between the above two cards is quite significant.  You can do comparisons between different graphics cards by going to

The cards you link to are PCI express cards but both the 1300 & 1600 Radeons are available in AGP 4X/8X and are compatible with your mainboard:

The spec vary somewhat from mfg to mfg but in general:
the 1300 is; engine clk 450 mHz with 4 pixel pipes...approx 1.8gpixels/sec, memory bandwidth...approx 8.0gb/sec.
the 1600 is; engine clk 500 mHz with 12 pixel pipes..approx 6.0gpixels/sec, memory bandwidth...approx 12.8 gb/sec.
The 1600 is the definate superior to the 1300 but inferior to:
the 7800 is; engine clk 430 nHz with 16 pixel pipes.approx 6.88gpixels/sec, memory bandwith...approx 41.6gb/sec.
If you are on a budget, the 1600 Radeon offers the best bang for the buck.

actually your motherboard have 6 PCI slots and ONE AGP slot.  so the cards with PCI-e should work on your motherboard. goodluck

PCIexpress will NOT work on your mainboard...PCI slots are not compatible with PCIexpress.
