you need a PCI express slot. A regular pci slot will not do the trick.

Also the x800xl is a sh!tter. Go for nvidia 6600gt.

maybe i have a pci express slot how do i check and if i dont what are some good pci graphic cards

the long yellow slot is a PCI express slot



can you tell me the model of computer/motherboard you have? If you can, i can tell you wether or not you have a PCI express slothttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Showim...board+-+Retail

I can't seem to find it. How old is this computer?

Also, have you opened the case before?

It looks like you have got a PCI-Express Port from the information on the internet (SOny has the worst online data and support information ever!!!!)

If you are planning on spending the same amount of money buy a 6800GT not a X800XL. It will last you a while longer than a 6600GT.

Why did you Buy a SOny???
