Default Need help with Radeon 9700/9500.

I have a HP Compaq Presario Desktop with Intel® Celeron® Processor 2.7GHz - S5200NX

RAM: 512 MB
Video Card: Intel® 82845G Graphics controller

Ok, my problem originally was that my video card was pretty old, most of the new games don't work...

So I bought an ATI Radeon 9700/9500 and so I went home and tried to make it work...however it doesn't even fit inside my computer, there isn't enough room for me to put it in (It's blocked by metal, the card is too big to fit inside)...So I was wondering if it's compatible with my computer?

If it is: Could you tell me how/where to install it?

Srry for bothering you and being a newbie :P

Anyhelp would be appreciated, ty ^^"

Hey again, that would be probably because your motherboard only has PCI slots, and that 9700/9500 is a AGP interface card. It is NOT compatible with your computer.
