Default Will this video card work on a newer motherboard?

Picture describes everything...

I tried inserting it but it doesn't seem to fit right unless I insert the hook end first to bypass the latch.

Just by looking at it it doesnt seem like it would fit.

Is it an AGP, PCI or PCI-E GPU?

And what kind of slot is the one you are trying to put it in?

No, it won't work.

The card you took out is AGP, and the slot you wanna put it in is PCI-E.
