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?

The Inno 3D 6800GT card will work fine on your motherboard. If your CPU is a Pentium 4 it will do alright although a 3.0+ Ghz would be best.

Some argue that buying a AGP 8x (which the Inno 6800GT is) card and putting into a AGP 4x motherboard is pointless. However, the AGP 8x/4x is just the transfer rate of data through the AGP memory window. A system memory/bus transfer to the video adapters extra memory where commands and data are stored. It does not effect the speed at which the graphics accelerator processor can build and display updates for the screen, unless it is having to wait on data to come in from the system memory. So any differences would depend on what the graphics program was doing. If the adapter has enough memory to load everything it needs for most operations, then the speed of this bus is not important once that data is loaded into the card.

So, you will benefit alot from the 6800GT card compared to your old FX5600 although you might need a faster CPU and a AGP 8x motherboard to really get 100% out of the 6800GT.

Good luck!
