    I have Asrock DUAL-SATA2 and Asus P5K. Asrock has been stable for me.
    The Asrock mb I have was very popular back in its day because it
    supports both AGP and PCI-E. I've used both types of video cards in it
    with no issues. I'm typing this to you from that PC right now and I have
    Vista installed on it.

    That video card won't be a problem. I use a Galaxy 8800GT on the same
    motherboard. Is that listed as compatible on their site? All Nvidia GPU
    cards are pretty much the same except the HSF and color may be different
    and the amount of clock and memory speeds can be different. They use
    various ram manufacturers too but that won't affect compatibility with a mb.
