I have an HP Workstation xw 6000. With Twin Processors; X86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9 GenuineIntel ~ 2658 Mhz, on each. Total Physical Memory of; 2,048.50 MB. 36 GB Hard Disc. 2 GB RAM. It came with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS. (64 MB) Graphics Card. AGP 4X. IRQ 16.
I want to replace the graphics card with something more beefy (without breaking the bank) to play PC games such as Call of Duty 4. I have recently bought an XFX Geforce 8600 GT graphics card, but, alas it does not fit into the expansion bay…!
My question is … ‘Before I buy another graphics card, how can I identify a compatible card that will definitely fit into the motherboard AGP expansion slot?’
Thanks for your help.

Man thats an old computer.
Your main problem is that the bulk of graphics cards have moved on from AGP to PCI-Express as a slot.
You need to find a card that is "AGP" but good luck with that, they are few and far between.
Thanks for the quick response...
The problem I have is identifying an AGP card that will fit into the slot on the mother board, before I buy it. Cheers.
