    Download this; http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpu-z-138.zip, open it and run cpuz.exe and then look under the mainboard tab, and list the motherboard name and model # back here. By the way, welcome to Techspot :wave: !

    Actually, while you're already in the Mainboard tab, look under "Graphic Interface" and copy that and post it here. That just saves us the extra google search when we know the name of your mobo.


    EDIT: That motherboard info doesn't tell us anything at all (i google'd "omo321"), it's best you look under the "Graphic Interface" after all

    Or just crack open your case, and look at the bottom left, and if there is one slot that dosnt match all the others you have AGP, if they all match you have PCI.

    Follow F1N3ST's approach and open up the case.
