Would you have AGP as your main and some other PCI; Google says they might be 'extension' or 'expansion' slots, what are these? Thanks kitteh_ June 24, 2010 3:16:18 PM FunSurfer said:Or download CPU-Z. I have got CPU-Z but I'm not sure where it says? hunter315 a c 202 U Graphics card June 24, 2010 3:37:35 PM older boards had a single AGP as their primary and a few PCI slots to support other expansion cards, more recent boards tend to have one or more PCI-E slots. They are called expansion slots because they allow you to plug cards into your system to expand its capabilities over those which the motherboard provides. wishmaster12 June 24, 2010 3:40:25 PM agp uses the ram on the mother board pci-e uses the ram on the video card FunSurfer a b U Graphics card June 24, 2010 4:10:58 PM kitteh_ said:I have got CPU-Z but I'm not sure where it says? Click on "Mainboard" and look down in the "Graphic Interface" - your bus type and transfer rate are written there. There is an example in this site: http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/windows/Cpu-Z-Review-3... look down at the middle review image (example of AGP X8 interface). kitteh_ June 24, 2010 7:21:55 PM Non-seriously, Would this be a good buy? http://www.digitalpromo.co.uk/gigabyte-nvidia-geforce-9... hunter315 a c 202 U Graphics card June 24, 2010 7:50:29 PM Need to know what kind of slot you have first before we can suggest a card. But at that price that card is a pretty bad buy, overclockers.co.uk has an XFX 5750 for the same price.
