I have a graphics card called S3 Virge/GX2 made in Taiwan.
It has a yellow video out socket for T.V., a VGA socket and an S-video socket.

I can't work out what type of slot it fits into.
It won't fit into an AGP slot or a PCI E x16 slot, or a PCI E x1 slot or the normal PCI slots.

The gold colored insert starts about 7cm from the front of the card (where the video sockets are)
The first section is about 3-4cm long, then one gap and the second section is about 7-8cm long.
It is exactly the opposite dimensions as a normal PCI card.

front- ___________________________ back
.....gold strip-.l___l l___________l



Please, can Someone tell me what the name for this type of slot is.

So, I'd need a really old pc or something?
Do you think anyone would want it?
Thanks for your reply mate.

Highly doubt anyone would want it, other than maybe to tinker with it. I'd just donate it to a school's IT department or something.

The S3 was a good card in it's day (Better than the opposition).
It probably is a 1X AGP, I have a couple. I still use the PCI version when testing computers, it's easier than trying to find where I have put my spare AGP/PCI express card.
