    What Interface Type is the Motherboard for video cards? PCI, PCI Express or AGP. I am going to switch out my media Center PC Standard video card for a HD Video Card and wanted to as here first if anyone knew what type of Interface the Motherboard is. I looked on google and think its a PCI Express but wanted to make sure befor I buy.

    Pull the side panel off and look at the slot 99% of the boards say right above them in a small print. Your machine will have pci slots and im almost 100% sure you have pci-e 16x slot also.
