Well what slot do you have? PCI, AGP(8x)(4x)(2x), PCI-Express x16? You have to know this before you get a new video card, and if you have PCI-Express x16, well you are in business. :tazz:

Hmm... Since Everest is not freeware I don't have my favorite program. :tazz:

I guess you'll have to wait till a tech can supply a different program.

Do you know the brand and/or model of your computer or something? I could try to look info if I had that information.

I would use CPU-Z, under the mainboard tab there is a graphical interface it will tell you the interface type and the link width(2x 8x or 4x) if there isnt one listed it will be a PCI card you will need to get and thats not good.
