Installing a video card will generally automatically disable the on-board video,
and it's drivers, at the installation of the new video card's software.
If not automatically, you can do it manually.
So, no problemo.
AGP or PCI ?
(or PCI Express)
That depends on the PC.
Older units, AGP was better than PCI, generally, since the AGP (advanced graphic port) was located nearer to the cpu and had a "better connection for graphics" than a "standard PCI device" like a modem or whatever,
but the new PCI express is taking advantage of better mainboard architecture.
So, bottomline is what do you have, exactly, and what do you want to install?

Good job, Babyface
System Reports are full of info,
more than half of which is computer science over my head.
(may as well be rocket science for what I comprehend of it all)
After a couple years of refering to mine, though,
are starting to sink in, and I get a picture ...
One thing I can see is that your PC is very similar to mine.
I'm going to study the two side by side a bit more as time permits, today.
What interests me is that your Pentium 4 roughly = my AMD in many ways.
The differences/similarities will be worth discussing.
AMD vs. INTEL is one of the oldest classic "debates" online.
BTW, you have a video card installed, exact same kind as mine,
might even be the same maker's. (mine is made by Chaintech)
I think we'll be able to figure out the best improvement(s) for you,
dollar for dollar by lookin' at the "bigger picture".
Stay tuned ...
Tell us more about how it works for you, day to day.
Things you like about it, things you don't.
I'll do the same, soon.
