bring it back and exchange it for a pci graphics card or purchase a new motherboard with an agp slot.

is your card pci or agp? you sure you don`t have an agp slot? it`s the brown one.

Sell it. Of course if it is brand new and boxed you will a decent sum for it: £35 I would say.

It costs me £39 to get a brand new one from the stockists, an Asus one.

well i got it for 53 and it is a Geforce Fx5200 Gpu with 128ram with TV out/dvi otes technology and i am sure i have not got a abg slot cos my pc is a new one and i know what one looks like and why a new mother bored i just got this pc

"and i am sure i have not got a abg slot cos my pc is a new one"

If the motherboard is new then it will have an AGP slot.

aida32 will tell you if you have an agp slot or not click here

download and install the personal version and click:

"motherboard" then on the right look at the info for "expansion slots"

if its a new computer as you say you should have an agp slot.

its just as quick to whip of the side and have a look.

I might be wrong but usually but not always some motherboards share the last PCI slot. IE there is a smaller slot to the right of the last PCI slot, which the AGP board fits.

A really stupid question...is there an AGP slot, but it's partly hidden/in use by an existing card?

I'm just very surprised a new computer/MoBo doesn't have one!

From memory that's the method my Elite mobo uses.

Something has gone wrong! If it is a new pc then it SHOULD have an AGP slot. If have been sold one w/o, then you have been conned.
