AGP and PCI graphics cards

by melissam0ss / January 1, 2005 8:59 AM PST

Your recent article about adding graphics cards to pc's with intergrated mobos was great, but aren't there also some AGP cards that have to use the AGP type slot AND a PCI slot at the same time? I have an old homebuilt pc and I was trying to take out the old (Diamond Stealth <32mb that wouldn't work ANY game I own) and it was stuck in there really tight. I was afraid to pull on it too hard and it looked like it was plugged into the AGP slot and also PCI slot <?>. If I am confused and you know what I might be trying to say, please do. thanx for your help, I got my other pc (Dell) upgraded to a fast new PCI card to play my games but did have to disable the onboard graphics card in the bios like you said.
