Default PC Hardware Assistance.

My dad got a new laptop so I can have his old desktop. Problem is it has a craptastic Intel graphics processor in it and I need some assistance.

This is a spare video card I have. Now this is an AGP card and this motherboard has no AGP inputs in it:





And here's the motherboard. That spare input is a PCI slot, am I correct? Would a PCI video card be able to be placed into there?




If a PCI card can fit in there I need to know a low budget card capable of running windows Aero and no more than that.


It would be nice if you can answer all of these questions.



Also on ebay when I search for GPU's all of the ones seem like they would fit in that have the short chunk first then the long one but as seen in the pic it has the long chunk first then the short one. So to me that seems like I would have to put it in backwards or something for it to fit.

If its PCI it should work.

But be careful that you don't get a PCI-e card. They are different.
PCI = old
PCI-e (PCI Express) = new

Could you give us more details ?
Because PCI-e has different speeds 1x,8x and 16x also the connectors change.

It's old, so I was assuming that it is not equipped with PCI-e

Just looking at it you can tell it's a PCI slot.
