Hey there,

I have a HP 085Ch,
3.06 Ghz
1.24Gb Ram

I am lookign for a videocard, to play games such as call of duty 2, etc.. I want these to run everything at top quality so i am farely ok with putting a bit of money into the card.. Thing is, i have been hearing that Pci cards are bad and Pci-e is the best. How can i check what i have and can anyone direct me to a site with some good grafix cards?

Heres what a AGP slot looks like. Its next to the white PCI slots there.


If you do have a AGP slot you are in luck. There are still plenty of cards for this slot.If you don't have that AGP slot you will probably need to get a PCI video card. This one is about the best you can buy for PCI.


The good thing about this card is that it is close to what a agp card can do.

If you do have agp there are plenty of cards.


I doubt that you have a PCI-E slot and it would mean you would have to buy a new motherboard and probably some other hardware to run one.
