Default Agp/pci?

Hello.
I used to have this old Dell with this ATI card which I still want to use for this new build(i wont be playing games thats why i want to keep it.):http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102153

Now this may sound dumb but: Is this card put on an AGP slot or PCI slot? If it is PCI is the regular PCI slots or the express x1 or x16.
I know again this might sound pretty stupid, but Im not up to date with all this computer stuff.
Plus what type of motherboard would anyone suggest I buy for this card. Im kind of cheap so maybe nothing over $100.

the ATI Card
is to be fit in the PCI slot, the regular one, not the PCIE
and the mobo u want for this card also depends on wat processor u got.
so if u could tell us wat processor and rams u got atm.

Thanks.
I got an AMD 64 X2 3800 I believe. I actually got it for free, meh........
About the RAM, I have not decided. But Ill be doing alot of multitasking, so maybe 2gigs? I dont know. Maybe 1gig.
Well let me just say it. Ill be doing alot of music recording, mixing and so on. Ill most likely not use it for games.
