All the of the motherboards you are looking at don't have an AGP slot, which is needed for your video card. Most new motherboards only have PCI-E 16x for Video cards. Your two options are to either buy an older motherboard that still has an AGP slot or upgrade your video card to PCI-E 16x and buy one of these newer to the market motherboards that you have listed.
