  1. If you jump into your motherboards BIOS, there should be no options for AGP setup; alternatively, open the case and read the silkscreening on your MB slots....; or go the the MB manufacturers website.

    WHat is your current graphics card?
  2. genrally a PCI-E slot will have a sort of...Release mechanisum on the right hand side of the slot...either a pull/push leaver or a pull/push pin sort of thing.

    Or like mdd1963 said, try the mobos website or google the mobo + specs

    E.G. Asus p5KPL/1600 Spec
