    You have both an AGP slot and a PCI-Express slot???
    Tell us more about your brand and model of motherboard.

    the mother board is bound to suck as it was only a 400 pound machine
    intel dual core 2.5 mhz 2gb ram nvidia 9500 1 gb memory 320 gb hard drive


    but ive upgraded to 4 gb ram and am going to either attach 2 9800s in sli or just the one if i cant based on u guys input
