Can my motherboard support PCI Graphics card ?

I want to change the Graphocs Card in my PC - I have a MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570G) board with a Radeon 9800SE GC and 1024mb RAM. Everest Home Edition tells me I have 1 x AGP, 5 x PCI and 1 x ACR expansion slots - does this mean I can choose whether I buy an AGP or PCI card ?

PS - AGP better than PCI, IMHO.

Don't fall into the trap of thinking you can use a PCI-E graphics card. These are the newest cards and will not fit your system.

Excellent - next question then, could you offer any help which slot the PCI's would be / look like ? Also, do I need any additional cables, wires etc to fit a PCI ?

do you mean PCI express card instead of the AGP one fitted .

AGP slot is the White one.

  Technotiger 21:58 03 Jan 2007

Ooops sorry - the Black one, not White. PCI slots on this board are white I believe.

The 5 white ones together are PCI here

I wondered that too .....
Dick_Dastardly a PCI exprees card wont fit your mobo . standard PCI performance not a patch to AGP one fitted.

You will not be able to get a PCI card to come near the card you presently have as your board will not accept PCI-Express!
