There's AGP, AGP Pro, PCI, PCI-E. And most probably others.

What kind of slot does the mobo (whats the model/brand of the mobo), have and what kind of videocard did u get??

Ok, that mobo has an AGP port, and 5 PCI slots.

And what kind of videocard did you get?? ISA or PCI-E, or something?

What do you mean by VGA slot??

Its either an AGP port, or PCI slot. Those are the only slots on your mobo.

I just checked the reciept its a ASUS GF7100GS PCIE.
Sorry i meant the [brown] slot were the video card normally goes into.

Sorry, but you are out of luck. there is no way to use a PCIE card in an AGP motherboard
