most likely either AGP8x or PCI-Express. what did you order when you choose the vid card and did it say AGP or PCI-Express 16x?

awesome, that's a new gen card, get a PCI-e 16X card then, prefferably a 6600GT, or a 6800GT if you can afford it. there are cheaper cards out there for PCI-e like the radeon X300 as well if you are on a budget. just check out newegg.com and search around for PCI-e cards and compare, get back with us when you find a few you like.

I went to alienware.com and tryed to leach out as much info as i can and the maximum graphic memory was 128MB Quote:
PCI-Express x16 NVIDIA or ATI high-performance graphics
Up to 128MB DDR dedicated video memory
DVI, VGA, and S-Video outputs with dual-display support*
Full DirectX® 9.0 and OpenGL® 2.0 graphics compatibility
does this mean i cant use higher grade cards like the 6800gt
