Default AGP help?

Can anyone tell me if this computer has an AGP slot?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103026

And if not, what is that slot above the pci slots?

sorry for the long link.. You can go down a few pictures to see the mobo.
Thanks.

no that computer doesn't have an AGP slot, but the slot above the PCI slot looks to be a PCI-E

Ok, thank you. Can anyone confirm this is a pci-e slot? I'm buying this in an hour and have to know if I need to buy a mobo. Thanks.

Are you sure?! I had the same mobo on my old computer and I don't think my agp graphics card worked... If I do need to buy a new mobo, are PCI-E graphics cards that much better than AGP? Thanks for all the help!

Actually... it turned out to be a pci-e.. the mobo wasn't exactly the same colour and the pci-e slot is orange. I'm very dissapointed guys.. =P Thanks for all the help!!

It's an AGP Slot. AGP Slots are always about a half-inch behind the PCI slot. So yes, that is AGP. PCI-E is about an inch or so longer then PCI and usually black, while AGP is generally brown.
