Default Help with my video card.

Hey everyone, again. I know ive been making quite a bit of threads on my new pc, but I am just making sure I am doing everything correctly, and this is my last question.

Alright, I am buying the 8600GTS video card, and it's PCI express. I currently have a 7600GT and I was wondering if I have regular PCI or PCI express. I don't know much about my motherboard, except for this:

Motherboard ID 01/05/2006-NF-CK804-6A61FJ19C-00

Board: NF-CK804
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 01/05/2006

It's also a socket 939, which means it might be a little on the older side. The 7600GT that I have is evga. All help is appreciated. I just need to know if my motherboard is PCI express or not. Thanks.

Your 7600GT is PCI-E there are no 7600GT's that are PCI so dont worry about the upgrade. You could try and upgrade to the 8800GTS 320mb its a huge diference for the price.
