Default VIdeo card & motherboard compatability

I am building a 64 bit computer I have a AMD 3200 Processor 939 oin & a Abit UL8 motherboard. my question is How do I know if I can use PCI express video cards or not. the motherboard has the 1 AGp slot & 5 PCI slots & if this motherboard cant handle PCI express will any AGP card work. I already have the Nvidia 5500 card.

Most likely. Just see if it'll fit, and if it does, it will work.

if there is no PCI EXPRESS SLOT then a card that is PCI EXPRESS wont work. IF u have an AGP SLOT then an AGP card should work.

yea those are very good cards but are very expensive. If you dont have a big budget get a 6600GT, or a 6800
