    I have this slot in my computer. I thought it was a AGP slot, but when I tried to put a AGP video card in there, it wouldn't fit. Maybe i wasn't doing it right, but the card would not go in there. So what type of port is it?

    Its an AGP slot. What card are you trying to put in? An AGP Pro card?

    its an old AGP card I found, but its too big to fit in that slot. Are you sure its an AGP slot Triple6. My PC is an HP Pavilion 325c - I can't find any info on that slot in the book either.

    sorry to re-open this question after i reported it as (solved), but i have another question that goes along with it...

    Has the AGP slot changed? I have an older computer, about 4 or 5 years old with an AGP slot in it, but it is WAY different than the AGP slot I have in that picture, so I was curious if the AGP slot has changed. Thanx.

    Not physically but electrically.

    The current 8x slots run at a different voltage than previous 1x/2x slots which means you can no longer drop in any old card into a older pc

    Cheers
