Hi! I just bought a new video card. It is an ATI Radeon 9250. The video card I have now is a TNT2 16 MB. It is in the little white slot (PCI I think). Any way the new one will not fit in either that one or the long black slot. I was just wondering if any one could tell me what slots I have and what video card type I need to get in order for it to fit. THanks and I apologize in advance for the poor qualiy pictures.

The slots I have now:

it's an AGP video card. That means that it's not supposed to fit in the PCI slot. Your computer must have an AGP slot (usually a black slot by itself) for the card.

Need a new motherboard from the looks of it.

And since I see ISA slots on that board (the long black slots), the chances are you probably need new everything else as well.

AGP slots are usually coloured brown, not black. Although on modern systems they could any colour under the sun :tazz:
