This is my mainboard MS-6533XG-IL (IEEE1394, 10/100 LAN) , http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=413

Can anyone tell me if it can support a Inno 3D Geforce 6800GT?

Also my processr is like 2.66ghz, i know it won't b able tofully utilize the 6800GT but if im upgrading froma FX5600 will i notice a VERY largr Improvement in terms of graphics quality and performance?

well, u could put a 6800 on it, but it would be useless, because the mobo can only handle 4x
the proc FSB is also low, only 533, the on-board sound is junk, the chipset is made by SiS (of wich i don't know much, but i don't think it can mach up with a Intel or Nforce2).
so, in conclusion, either get a 6800 now (AGP) or wait until u get a better mobo with a PCI Express slot and get a PCIe 6800, and a 800mhz proc. (the later option is the best imo).

Ure obviously not well informed right now games don't even utilize AGP4X let alone 8X the only slow thing i have is the FSB and i use an Audgigy 2 ZS not onboard sound.
i only wanted to check if the moteherboad would read the card not get it critisized

Your board should be able to run the card with out any problems. As the difference between 4x and 8x AGP is very slight. I used to run a 8x Ti 4200 in a 4x board and had no problems. Just be sure you have an adequate power suppy before you get the card.
