PCI Express

I just got a new graphics card!

Unfortunately, it's a PCI Express card, and I don't have a PCI Express slot on my motherboard. Is it possible to add a PCI Express slot to it?

Negative. You'll have to buy a new motherboard.

If afraid that yes you need a new MOBO Chris.

The AGP-PCI slots are different

...and they have different funcionality

There are some tries of a converter (Hardware part) about it but i don't suggest it according to what i read,and its obvious because there are major differences between the way each card works.

Thanks for your help!

I ended up returning my GeForce card. I bought the ATI Radeon 9550. It is pretty good, but I still have some "freezing" when flying in FSX, especially in New York.
