  1. Im interested in upgrading from fx 5200 to 7600 gs but i have older motherboard (msi 6547 ultra-c) with only conventional PCI slots. The question is: Can i put a PCI Express video card into conventional PCI slot.

    Well, I suppose with force you could, but it would very likely destroy both the card and the mainboard.

    NO you can't,
    Read your motheboard manual or DLoad a pdf version.
    I don't think their worth getting a new mbd,unless you where planning to.
    AGP is good video.
