Default Quick Question

I was wondering. Does every recent computer come with a AGP or PCIe video card slot? My friend bought a Dell less than a year ago and he says he can only use PCI cards(not PCIe). I find it hard to believe, and hes a bit computer retarded, so I'm sure he doesnt know where to look. Anyone know if there is a AGP slot atleast?

Some Dells came with no AGP just PCI slots. I believe the dimension 3000 is one of them.

get the model # and then look up the specs online, or get him to download cpu-z, and that may tell him.
