my computer has a msi kn8 neo2 platinum motherboard it has a agp slot and 4 pci slots the bottom one being orange in colour now i have 2 graphics cards one is a agp the other is pci does this mean i can use either of the cards in this mother board?, i would rather use the pci if poss as it is a better graphics card having ice cooling fitted, in the bios it says agp on and there is another listing below that saying pci off both of my cards have a 6 pin
block for the power supply and both cards are ati radeon

The board click here has an AGP slot so if you have an AGP graphics card this is the one I would use over PCI.

Usually graphics card performance only really comes into play if your playing games although it does help a bit if you have something with at least 128MB of ram on it if you do anything multi media. AGP will always out perform the PCI equivalent.

I cannot imagine the PCI card would be better than the AGP card, unless of course you mean PCI-express, but you can't fit a PCI-express card into that mobo.

What are the 2 cards exactly?
