I want to get a new graphics card, but I don't know if my motherboard only takes a certain kind of card. But is there somewhere I can go to look at what motherboard I have? And where do I go to see what kind of graphics card I have?

to see what mother board you have ,use this program ,run it and go to motherboard section and will give a name and a model number for most boards ,post the results back here and we will have a look for you .

Most newer motherboards either take PCIE or AGP. Older system mother boards took PCI. CPUID is the greatest. I use it all the time. Good suggestion capperjack.
