Pop the case and look for a slot that's above the PCI slots, but not quite lined up. It should be roughly the same length as a PCI slot, but will usually be a different color. And it will be offset and above the PCI slots. But be careful, not all AGP slots are created equal. What motherboard do you have?

Hi,

Mostly the AGP card will be chocolate(brownish) in color,near to the PCI slot
that would be white in color.

Hi tony,

I am really sorry for the delay in answering,
Yes, thats what ur looking for ( its the AGP slot),
any AGP card will fit in that slot..ask for a AGP Card
nVidia cards are popular..

regards
