an Accelerated Graphics Port, and you'll find it on your motherboard (if it has one). It's a card slot, is slightly shorter than the others, and is coloured brown.

You need to buy an AGP graphics card to use it of course.

Accelerated Graphics Port, its brown card slot on your PCs motherboard, assuming it's got one. It should be next to the white PCI slots. If the board is more than a few years old it may not have one.

The AGP (advanced graphics port) slot is found on the motherboard and can be identified by the two apertures for fitting the graphics card into as opposed to the single aperture for PCI slots.

On some motherboards it is also a different colour to the PCI slots.

It is used for attaching the Graphics Card to the motherboard and contains all the necessary contacts for the exchange of data between the MoBo and graphics card.
