AGP is advanced graphics port.
That is the usual place for the graphics card
Which you can buy depends on your processor speed, your motherboard, your ram and your requirements.
It is of course pointless spending a lot of money on a graphics card,. if all you areusing it for is general computing with a few images etc.
On the other hand if gaming is your thing, then you will need a good card particularly for 3D.
Be careful, as just the other week, I was asked to look at a problem where a person had a graphics card installed, by a computer bsuiness, and the card was NEVER going to work properly with his processor speed and ram.
Your first line of enquiry is to check your processor - right click My computer and click Properties on the General tab it will give you the speed of the processor and the amount of ram.
Then look at the site for your motherboard and get some details from there for max amount of ram. etc.
Now go to graphics card ie: Nvidia etc and knowing what you want it for select and check requirements against the info you have from above.
If you need further help pls post back.
