Is it a PCI slot?


I need a video card that is compatible with 32 bit DirectX player. There is a slot on the left side of the machine that is supposed to be for a video card. But I don't know what kind to get and a salesman at CompUSA says that you can't put a video card in there and that they are not available. Is this true? According to Sony it is supposed to be a PCI slot. Thanks. Shirley

Most video cards these days are being made for AGP slot which is the brown slot on your motherboard closest to the CPU If all you have is a PCI slot, there is a company called ATI that sells a video card that supports DirectX which is called the "Radeon 7500 64mb PCI" You can purchase this at or other ATI retailers This is a low end video card that supports Direct X If you are looking for something high end you would need a AGP slot video card.
