It does NOT have a AGP slot on the motherboard.

It looks like the Imperial G support AGP from the diagram.

I'm sorry guy but emachines are make to be inexspecive. So they use as much of the onboard features as possible. Some chip sets have the audio and video built in. In those cases the lower end models won't have an agp slot.
You could add some ram but stay within the specs of the board and cpu. Then after adding ram go in the bios and increase the amount of ram the video shares. It's possible it's at 16 or 32 megs now. Unless you add some more ram leave the setting alone.
I know that was not what you wanted to hear. Sorry.

You can get this:

3D Fuzion 3DFR55256P Geforce FX5500 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143032

Much more video RAM than what you have now. Maybe once you disable the onboard RAM, you will regain the full 512MB back. Plus, you can add another 512 MB RAM to beef it up further. It should run you around $150 for everything (RAM and Video card).

The drawing is misleading. The pictures have the power plug where the agp slot would normally go.

You can get a PCI video card. Anyone can get it no matter what motherboard you have. PCI slot is universal and standard.
