This board is PCI only. No AGP there... usually its the slot closest to the cpu on the bottom of the board, the long black slots are you ram.

Is it possible that you have onboard video ( do you plug your monitor into the area about paralell to your processor (the thing with the fan on it.)

For a second opinion, the board is PCI only.

what kinda of games are you tring to play?

Honestly, it really woulndt be worth putting a new Graphix card in, more than likely you only got 256mb of ram, and the CPU prolly lacks in speed. So the only games you will be able to play are gonna be the older games.
