Default Upgrading my computer

I want a higher-end AMD video card but all i have in my system is PCI slots.
Is there some sort of adapter or whatever so that I can put an AGP card on my motherboard or would I have to buy a whole new motherboard so I can buy a higher-end AGP graphics card

If I were to have to buy a new motherboard, would I have to buy a new processor or CPU or could I use the one I have in right now.

what processor do you have right now? but yes it should for all my knowledge work just fine, you must make sure to get the same socket as the cpu slot you have right now, you cant buy an adapter... but pci is only supposed to be 10% or so slower, however you cant normally get higher-end cards.

The World is my trashcan and i intend to fill it...
