    You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

    How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

    EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

    I've never heard of a motherboard that has a place for an AGP slot but doesn't actually have an AGP slot. No, you can't add slots to a motherboard.
