Exactly, un-clip, remove, place and push in the new RAM. It's as easy as 1-2-3, and 4 :P
Easiest upgrade there is.

make sure to unplug power cord and hold power button in for about 20 seconds to discharge all power from board first ,

GAH! I'm pulling my hair out at this point. It IS an AGP afterall, but there (according to wiki) are two types of AGP slots. A 1.5 volt and 3.3 volt. I had a friend look at my mother board today (Intel D865PERL) and he says he thinks my slot is the 1.5 volt and that the card that I got is a 3.3...he thinks the card I need may be hard to find, but I'm nothing if not persistant.

i showed you this info before ,but its your motherboard and the info is clear ,
AGP 3.0 (4X & 8X Speed at 1.5 and 0.8 Volt Only)
my ? to you is what is wrong with the video card you have now !!

also this in the pdf file i downloaded from intel site ,
The AGP connector is keyed for 1.5 V and 0.8 V AGP cards only. Do not attempt to install a legacy3.3 V AGP card. The AGP connector is not mechanically compatible with legacy 3.3 V AGP cards.

Eh. I missed it. No big deal, really. I didn't understand that there were two choices in voltage. Lesson learned.
