    There is a Techspot thread HERE that answers your exact question.

    You have to be aware of power requirements, as you`ve only got a 250W PSU.
    Not a problem if you haven`t added any other drives since you bought it.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have merged your new thread into this one.

    You cannot put an agp card into a pci slot.
