What type of Motherboard do you have. make and model would make it easier to determine .

Also, is this if your building a computer or do you just want to know what you can replace in your existing computer?

if you want to put a new card in,
If you have an nvidia card with current drivers (cause thats how I can find mine) you can right click on the desktop, go to nvidia display, click on the name of your monitor, then information and settings of your video card should pop up. *edit* should be roughly the same with an ATI card and drivers.

I made a visual guide for you. Most AGP slots are brown though.

Best way might just be if you have a digital camera just open your case take a picture and host it to a website then put the link here so us experts (hihi like to sound inteligent sometimes) can analyse (oh yeah I use complicated words) it.

BTW photobucket.com is a good site for hosting the picture and posting the link and I am sure the moderators and administrators would agree that it would probably be betting for the the out-of-date people still on dial-up that you post the link and not actually post the picture.
