    You have AGP graphics. You are probably thinking of PCI express 16 video cards. What you have are standard PCI slots for add on hardware like sounds cards, modems, and such. But like jack said earlier, you can get standard PCI graphics cards, but they are very crap and not worth your time.

    Good luck.

    Your computer will run either way, if that is what your asking... but AGP card will only work in an AGP slot, if you want to use the PCI slot then you need a PCI card... as simple as that.

    you need AGP Graphics card ...the pci slots you have are for things like internal dial-up modems and network cards, sound cards etc. ... what you're getting confused about is PICe graphics which WILL NOT work in a standard pci slot

    P.S. there are pci graphics cards but they are for older machines and max out at about 8-16 mb of ram

    both can be ok.

    but prefer AGP over PCI.
