    Hi,
    I have a HP Pavilion a820n computer. I would like to replace the on-
    board graphics card with a plug-in type in order to use my LCD
    monitor(1680X1050). On ebay, I find some cards are PCI-Express. On
    internet I find the mother board in Pavilion a802n has three PCI
    slots, see below. I want to know whether the PCI Express card can work
    in my computer. Thanks in advance.










    Expansion slots: Three PCI

    Although the specification of a820n says that it has three PCI slots.
    I see only one notch in the bus connector. So, it is PCI or PCI
    Express bus? Thanks.

    The motherboard in the A820n is a low-end one which lacks any sort of true video
    card slot, either AGP or PCI-Express. PCI and PCI-Express are incompatible,
    despite the similarities in names. Your only choice with the system would be a
    PCI card capable of handling the LCD resolution... Ben Myers
