Open up your side panel, and tell us what you see. The AGP slots are usually of blue, brown, or yellow color. And the PCI slots are usually white.

i see 3 white slots coming off of integrated 6100, but i checked the sizes it looks like the x700 pro would fit in nicely except for the fact that the x700 has 3 like tabs that should go into the slot but the slot only has 2 slits. not a good sign to an upgrade is it?

By any chance can you list me your motherboard model and make? I don't think you've listed it in any of your posts.

So theres only 3 white slots? Any other slots, besides those? If not, then you can't install that graphic card.

I'm assuming, that's the AGP slot. Does it look like the AGP card, will fit? PCI slots are only white.
