No, you will have to buy a new motherboard.

You cannot convert a PCI slot to and AGP slot.  If you purchase a new motherboard, they all come with an AGP slot, unless u buy a motherboard from a store that sells nothing but old stuff.

Maybe you're better off with a PCI graphics card?  This way you do not have to buy a motherboard

Return the video card to the store where you purchased it from and get the PCI version of the card.  Most cards these days come in a choice of versions, either PCI and AGP.  Of course, if you want to take advantage of the faster processing of that AGP offers, you will need to replace your motherboard.
