Hi, I have a "BUYMPC D865GLC" with Pentium 4 CPU computer which I bought almost few months back. It has an "Intel Desktop Board D865GLC" motherboard. I want to install an external graphics card to it, but I am not sure which one should I use. I wanted to ask you all that please do a little "research/investigation" for me that what type of graphics card are supported in my system except "PCI Express" ones, because I want graphics card which has an AGP interface that I can plug it in an AGP slot, and I am also not sure that whether my motherboard has an AGP slot or not. So, I want to ask that what type of AGP interface cards will my motherboard support? The AGP slot has two gaps i.e. one which is small and the other is long. Please help me find an ideal but cheap AGP graphics card for my system!

Socket 478, DDR memory, AGP - you bought a 6-7 yr old system! I sure hope you didn't pay much.

AGP is a dead end, it was replaced by PCI-express several years ago. Any decent AGP video cards that are available these days are generally very expensive when compared to their PCI-e counterparts. In fact, there are no really good AGP cards available anymore. NVIDIA pretty much abandoned the AGP format but ATI hung in up to the Radeon HD 4000 series. Even so, there have been a lot of driver issues with the "modern" ATI AGP cards.

Probably the best AGP card you can get is the Radeon HD 4670 but it's well over $100. The PCI-e version of the same card sells for 1/2 the price.

Sorry for the late reply!
There's one more thing that I would like to ask that "does the Intel D865GLC supports PCI-Express Cards?"
