  1. Best answer
    Are you sure you have PCI and not PCI-Express slot on your desktop?
    PCI slots are (usually) white, and about 3/4" x 1/2".
    PCI-Express slots are usually black or blue, about 1/4" x 1/4", and have a locking lever at the end.

    On the other hand: Your computer is (more than) 10 years old, why you are investing money it in? For as little as $300, you can have a desktop which will be ages ahead of what you currently have.

  3. I'm sure I have pci slots which are white. the slots are about 3" 1/4 inches long. Just can't afford a new pc at the moment:(
  4. You're looking for some "expensive" upgrade (you won't be able to reuse your new PCI video adapter in the next computer)
    Don't expect stellar performance (both your CPU, harddrive are slow) from your your new GPU.
