Default Confused! PCI or AGP slot?

Ok, heres the deal. I have a Dell Dimension 8300 PC and a GeForce FX 5200 video card. Now, when I go to My Computer then Properties it says my video card is in a PCI slot. But when I open up my PC my video card is in a green slot and i'm pretty sure that its an AGP slot. Could any of you here who know WAY more than I do verify with me that this is INDEED an AGP slot. I REALLY need to get a new card. Heres a link to my mother board. The green slot is what I believe to be AGP.

Yup, you're fortunate enought to have an AGP slot in a Dell. That's a rarity. Treasure it.
