My computer only has intergrated graphics and i would like to know whether it is possible to upgrade it to for example a 3D 64Mb graphics card or more. It has is a MSi 6741 K8T800 , details can be found here; click here={6b5fa06d-3b27-4010-a907-9ec0d43d4fc7}&CatID={f67bce36-9faa-4467-8ae4-b456e29050c3} Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Further i've heard graphics card that can be added through an agp slot are better than pci, can someone explain the diference, and tell me if i have an agp slot?

The only model 6741 that shows up in a websearch uses a K8M chip, not a K8T, but it uses an AGP slot (multiplier is not mentioned; could be 4x or 8x, but doesn't greatly matter).

AGP is vastly superior to PCI graphics. However, I suspect that you may in fact be referring to PCX (PCI Express). This has started to supersede AGP and is very different to the old PCI standard. Not many graphics cards ever used PCI as AGP came along when 3D cards became common.

click here Further reading has confirmed to me that it is 4x and 8x compatible, so any AGP currently on the market will fit. Use the MSI website to make sure of your particular motherboard model and revision, just to be on the safe side.
