Default Graphic card problem

Hey guys, I just bought A pci Express Graphic card, and I just now noticed that my computer only has normal PCI slots. I was Wondering if it would still work or will I have to send it back and buy a new one.

Thank you in advance.

PS please respond soon.

It won't work in PCI slots. What's your computer? Maybe you can just upgrade the motherboard. Otherwise, you're stuck with a 6200, max.

Okay then can you recommend a good AGP graphics card that will play the latest games, but keeping the price around $100? Thanks again for a speedy reply.

for around $100 the best you could get is probably a geforce 6200 unless you find a used 6600
