if you have a dell post your service tag, and that will give us your exact model and specs.

I am so sorry...I am dumb dumb dumb.....What is the service tag?? I am a Grandma and all I use this thing for is to IM and play games....I just bought the Sims 3 and I need all this to play....I think I can install myself if I know it is the one to buy..found some refurbished video cards that I am thinking I need on line. They only have 3 at 39.00 bucks, and they offer a year guarantee....so wanted to order while they still had....but my friend was saying he didn't know if it was PCI or AGP..I do not know what that is...he installed the extra memory for me..only had 256 MB of ram and he installed 1000...but hate to ask him to do this for me now..trying to do myself if I can....

the service tag should be in a sticker, somewhere in the case.
It will say service tag: and then 6 or 7 letters and numbers.
If you find this, I can tell you if your PC has an AGP slot (most have PCI).

No, the service tag should be outside.
What's the model of your computer?
i.e. Optiplex 740.
