I have been reading, studying, sweating and racking my brain over the last 4-5 days trying to find a video card for my pc--I have a few games that need more than my computer has in this area (Myst:Uru, WOW)--I have not posted any questions on any forums thus far--attempting to figure it out on my own because I know that most of you get tired of people asking "what video card should I get?"--but I have come upon a part that I just cannot find the answer too--at least one that I can understand-
My computer is a HP a424x--manufactured & introduced 12/03--I purchased it May of '04--I know for sure that I have to have a PCI card--not AGP (I bought a Radeon card last week and had to send it back because of this--I did not know what my computer took until I tried to put it into the slot)--so, now my problem is: everything listed on all of these sites selling video cards says either AGP or PCI-E--now, is this a major difference? my computer will hold a PCI according to the website when I put in the make and model, but will it hold a PCI-E? I do know that I have 2 open slots for graphics cards on the inside--
If I absolutely cannot have a PCI-E can you help guide me to a place that I may be able to find a good, reliable used PCI?
thanks so much for you time and consideration--
