Advice on graphic card interface



my motherboard has AGP 8X and i intend to move to intel with PCI express, the link below shows a graphic card which says(second line) interface PCI/PCI Express my understanding is that this graphic card can be used on PCi slot as well as PCI Express am i correct or they have got their advert wrong and there is not such thing in which it can be used on pci and pci express(with agp max memory is currently 512mb) . many thanks

No, PCI-E, is just that... A PCI-E Card/Graphics Card, needs to go in a PCI-E Slot on the Mobo...

I've certainly never heard, or seen anything to the contrary... (Not that I've tried putting a PCI-E card into a PCI slot of course...!)

Surely the best place for information about that card would be the manufacturer's website? A retail site, such as this is really only trying to attract business. They'd tell you that it could also make you coffee if they thought that you'd buy it!
