AGP or PCI...pls identify...!

Um, I've placed this graphics card on Ebay to asked if it's AGP or PCI.
To be honest I don't know and would appreciate an educated guess. I assume this could be worked out by the appearance of the blade in my image?

Thanks for your help, and sorry for sounding like a bit of a plonker :-)

It's an AGP card

Looks like a Radeon 9000 agp but not 100% sure.

The two pictures are not the same - so you can't draw that conclusion. Look at the layout of the components - it's different.

I said I wasn't 100% sure

Its definately an AGP card, the hook at the back denotes the AGP (and in new cards PCI-EXPRESS)

Anyway I think its a bit off, putting an item on ebay when you haven't got a clue about it.

It has the AGP locking slot on the right hand side.

It's a bit strange that you state: "This is a fast and capable graphics card ready to slot straight into your PC for an instant upgrade!" .."No cables required as it plugs straight.." and then query whether here it's PCI or AGP..:-))

Sorry to have caused a commotion!

AGP it is then.
I thought it was, but did not want to give the wrong information to a question I have. I put it under PCI memory too, so it's not gone too well!
Both images are the same I can assure you. I scanned the unit myself.
The unit is not from my PC, but I have been asked to sell it hence the mixed knowledge on my part.
Wish I was perfect like Stuart & hzhzhz ;-)

Thanks once again folks.

It's a gift - we just have to try not to abuse it...:-))
