So do PCI Cards suck a lot? I checked my motherboard, there are no AGP or PCI-E slots. There're just normal PCI slots. Are PCI cards even compatible to today's games such as Half Life 2 and Doom 3?
I guess the only way out is to change my motherboard... but if I do that, do I have to reformat my harddrives and everything? What do I need to transfer if changing motherboards? By the way, is that black small chip on the motherboard the CPU? If so, what are it's functions?
