Hi, i have a ASUS A7S333 computer with a AMD Athlon xp 1700+ processor, its a PCI bus 1. I have this game I want to play on here but requires a different video card, I found a: 1 ATI RADEON 9600 PRO VIDEO CARD DVI 128 MB DDR AGP 8X. This has all the requirements for my game but will this ATI fit into my computer which has a PCI bus 1?

No, you need an AGP slot for that radeon, are you also sure that its not a PCI-E 16x slot? or is it definitely a PCI-e 1x slot?

Doesn't look like that's actually the computer model number, but the motherboard model number. If that is the case, then here is the user manual for the motherboard. It states (page 19) in section 2.6.4 that you have an AGP 4x graphics card slot (brown slot above the white PCI slots).

Whether or not that card will work depends on how your motherboard's AGP slot is keyed. If the graphics card pins match the motherboard keys, then there shouldn't be a problem as an 8x AGP card should work in a 4x AGP Slot.
