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.

Please, can Someone tell me what the name for this type of slot is.
It's an AGP Video card, but it's one of the first, which means I highly doubt it's an 8x AGP card:
I have a faint memory of having a S3 virge card in one of 'my' first pcs way back... I believe it was in a 486DX4 based rig....
edit lol bloody smilies...
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. jb
