Default Do PCI cards work with AGP

Ok so I got 3 PCI slots and 1 pci gfx card and a brown slot, Ive been told the brown slot is AGP, But the PCI card has alot to many pins to fit in any PCI slots but fits perfectly in the AGP, It is definently a PCI card.

So do pci cards work in an AGP slot?

I reallly doubt it but im just making sure.

no, no, no... They shouldn't fit... well, at least you shouldn't be able to line the back of the case up with the back of the card.

Are you sure its a PCI card? If it fits in the AGP slot then its an AGP card............

ok... is it a PCI card, or PCI Express?? They are COMPLETLY different.

A PCI-express x4 or x8 card might APPEAR to fit in an AGP slot, but that doesn't mean it will.....

Just cause diesel and water can be PUT in your gas tank, doesn't mean you should put it in there.
