VGA Slot - BROWN

HI

I have a relatively old VGA card which fits in the brown slot of a PC motherboard. I would like to know what what is the name of the brown slot of which it fits into?

AGP or PCIE. The color is irrelevant.
If it's an old mobo, most probably AGP. See on the manufacturer's site or mobo manual.

Definately AGP, the color is relevant in this case, since AGP slots have (almost) always been brown.

Tx - trying to ascertain if card will work with newer PC(at least 10 years old) - the similar looking slot is purple and has a faulty video card in it. Any ideas?

Purple would be most likely pci-e, they come in all colors depending of the mainboard manufacturer, so that won't fit. If you look closely you can  check if the notches in the card are the same as in the slot.

As I said, don't bother with the color. AGP has the notch on the right, PCIE on the left.
