I am thinking of upgrading my current PC to run higher spec games. like splinter cell- double agent
My current system is:

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3400+,
MSI K8MM-ILSR motherboard,
1024mb DDR memory,
200gb serial ATA hard disk,
RADEON 9800 SERIES 256mb,
DVD RW DOUBLE LAYER 8 speed,
DVD x16.

Any help to upgrade this computer would be most helpful.

Thank you

Install everest click here and then look under chipset and it will tell you if its a pc-express or AGP

i looked in device manager and i think it is a PCI

  User-312386 13:25 30 Dec 2006

In device manager all it will say is PCI slot, which could mean pc-express
