The PCI video card should work, but you may need to change a setting in your BIOS to recognize it. Enter "setup" when the computer starts, and look for a setting about video options. There is usually a setting indicating to seek an AGP or a PCI video card upon startup. NO! A pci video card will only fit into a pci slot in a motherboard. Likewise an agp will only fit into an agp slot. They are completely different. Both of these above answers are right and wrong. PCI and AGP are two totally different standards, but as long as you have an open PCI slot, you can use a PCI video card and opt not to use the AGP (Make sure to change appropriate options in your BIOS.) ==Answer == Yes you can use a PCI card where the slot is avaliable, but if your motherboard has a slot for AGP cards it is worth noting that the systemboard was designed with AGP in mind. It offers a system bus direct to the prossesor for faster unhindered communication.Running a PCI card on a AGP board may and probably will slow down your system performance.

The 82945G Express Chipset is not a graphics card, it is a motherboard chipset. Your motherboard may have an onboard video card, but this is not it. However, a motherboard which uses the 82945G chipset should be perfectly capable of supporting a video card which has pixel shader 1.1 & higher.

An integrated video card is located on the motherboard itself and cannot be replaced. You can add a graphics card to one of the motherboard's slots though.

I assume the video card has built in DDR2 memory... and the new computer you're getting runs DDR3. If this is the case, yes, the video card is completely separate from the system. There should be no problems. You can run a video card with DDR5 on a computer that has DDR2 with no problems, aswell.
