  1. I have an ATI Radeon 9250 which is pci.
    I'm looking to upgrade to a decent gpu.
    I want to know if having a pci card necessarily means I only have a pci slot.
    I have an Intel Celeron 2.4 GHz

    I used PC wizard but didn't really come to any conclusion.
    Under mainboard it says "Slot PCI : 32-bit [5.0v, 3.3v] - Empty"
    Not really sure what this means.
    I also see "Number of PCI Bus : 2"
    Does this mean I could use two cards?
    And also I see "Number of AGP connectors : 1"
    Does this mean I have an AGP slot?

    If I can upgrade, what might you recommend? I don't really play games, purely for game development.
    If I'm stuck with pci cards, could I get anything that could significantly increase performance?
