I currently have a Medion pc with onboard graphics intel extreme 82845 g/gl/ge/pe/gv. Which fine for playing certain games but i'm having trouble playing games that require high end graphics. The only problem is i have no AGP slot so i wish to purchase a PCI card instead but somebody told me my PC might not be compatible with PCI express please help me and possibly recommend some cards that i can buy, i have listed my motherboard if that is any help

An 845 chipset is not a PCIe chipset.

There are a number of PCI cards that you could use, however, which would be an improvement on the 845 graphics.

Examples click here the same site has Ati based cards too.

The intel 845 chipset is not for PCIe. The "low profile PCI slots" in your first link, are exactly that - there weren't many of them and cards are hard to come by. They're a standard PCI slot but with limited height cards and shorter metal backplates, especially for thin cases.
