Unhappy Help. My new video card will not fit.

Hello,

I just received a ATI Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB AGP Video Card today. Not very good but, better than I had. I have a problem. The video card does not fit either of my systems. I have a newer HP pavilian 2.2 and another 3 years old with an AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.4. I've never had a problem like this before.

Do the video cards come with the plugs in different locations?

Yeah. After checking a bit more, I think that is the problem.
Can you reccomend a decent PCI video card that will work with a 300 watt power supply?
