ATG? Do you mean AGP?

The quick answer is they look fundamentally different. You should be able to tell just by opening up the case and having a look at the available slots.

An easy way to tell is to google your motherboard model and that will tell you the specifics of it.

What is your motherboard model?

Nah, don't be nervous, you'll end up spending much less money and get better parts. All of the cables are color coded or.. they'll only fit in one place. The difference betweed AGP and PCI16 is that the pci goes faster and you'll only find an lder mobo/video card that utalizes AGP.

I challenge you to build your own computer. If you need help, post something here and we'll give you a few links. You'll learn something new and when someone has a problem, you can fix it and get payed for it.

Actually, no I don't think that is your motherboard model. Tell you what, download CPUZ and look under the "mainboard" tab and your motherboard model will be there.

And don't be nervous about building your own pc. It'll be a good experience for you and you'll learn a lot. The hardest part really is matching the components so they work well together. CF is always here if you need help....

It's going to be somthing like this: M2N68-LA

What's the make and model number of your computer?

If you want to look on the inside, look at this picture.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-JAVA.../c01237554.jpg

That has pci16, 1 and pci. Not agp... if you have something different than in that picture then you probably have an agp slot.

I still want the model number so I can look it up.
