The graphics card you have is a PCI card, i.e. it fits into a PCI slot on the motherboard. The other card is designed to fit into an AGP slot on the motherboard. If your motherboard doesn't have an AGP slot then you'll have to buy a card designed to fit into a PCI slot. Some but not all graphics cards are made with PCI and AGP versions.

PCI slots are generaly white in colour, AGP slots are about the same size as PCI but they are brown in color and sit further back on the board.
I'll try and find a picture that will show you better.
