As a new buyer can anyone give me some advice on what type of graffics should i go for apg or pci.

If your motherboard has an AGP slot, a short brown slot above the long white PCI slots, then definately buy an AGP card.

Well yes if you have an AGP slot then yes get AGP, however if your motherboard has a PCI Express slot, which would be a brand new PC then get a PCI E card.

At this moment in time there is no difference in speed between either PCI express or AGP. The only advantage at buying a Motherboard with a PCI Express slot is that it should be more future proof but they are more expensive.
