Default What Type Of Expansion Slot Is This?

Hi there.

I was just wondering if any of you knew which type of expansion slot my mobo contains. (See Images)

I know it has 1 AGP slot which i presume is the brown one, but then it just says it has 3 PCI slots.

I was wondering if anybody knew wheather the slots are either PCI or PCI-E.

Thanks In Advance

If you ever want to know something about your system I recommend you run SIW...........an awesome freeware utility that will tell you everything you want to know, including your expansion slots.

Now that I know what type of slot I have which of these cards is best.

PCI: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/product...=2,12,57&n=693 (Only ones with 256mb memory)
AGP: http://www.microdirect.co.uk/product...2,57,701&n=677

Also which is better, PCI or AGP?

AGP and PCI-E 16x are the only valid slots for video cards.
