Graphics card upgrade

i wanna upgrade my current card ( nvidia riva TNT 16mb ), but is it a case of just slotting in any card or are there restrictions due to motherboard type,speed etc????

There are SOME restrictions depending on MotherBoard and it's AGP slot.

If memory serves there are two types of card and 3 types of AGP slot.

1 takes AGP type A (for example)
1 takes AGP type B
1 takes AGP A & B

now, the trouble is I can't remember the difference or why they are different!

It may well be because of the version whether is AGP, AGP 2x, AGP 4x or AGP 8x.

Sorry I can't be of more help until I find the article I need.
