I have a computer that is about 7 years old and the video card no longer cuts it (cant play bioschock!) Its a radeon 9500 pro, and i'm pretty sure its not a pci express card but is it possible to replace it with a PCIe? or do i have to stick with just pci unless i upgrade more? thanks!

If the computer truly is 7 years old it will not be PCI-Express. There is no way to add PCI-Ex short of replacing the board, processor and memory at the very least.

Take the side of the case off.

Does your video card plug into a brown slot in the middle of the board or does it plug into one of the white slots towards the bottom of the board?

If it is 7 years old it is probably AGP and with a computer that old you definitely need to get a whole new one.
