  1. Is there any way of checking what agp slot/s you have (4x 8x 16x) or what pci slots you have without opening the case and actually seeing them. I was thinking it may be possible by looking at device manager or dxdiag but I don't know where to look.

    Not device manager. Download one of the system monitoring applications. I just looked at my "Everest" Ultimate edition program and it tells you the make and model of your motherboard. Then go to Google and do a search. It's good to take off the side once in a while to check for dust and junk Also to get a look at things while it runs.

    Heh.. If you are against opening up your computer, then what's the point of finding out about the slots? You would still have to open up the macine to put anything in those slots :p

    i agree with Nodsu (we have seen this before, someone wanted to upgrade but refused to take the side off their case ;)) but i would like to just say that you can't get agp 16x, only up to 8x, pci-e comes as 16x though :)
