    Quick question -- If I buy a new motherboard which has PCI Express video (no AGP
    slot), will a regular PCI video card work in one of the other PCI slots as an
    alternative to using the PCI Express slot (i,e, will I get video)? I'm thinking
    of a way to avoid buying a new video card right away if I happen to buy a board
    with no onboard video and no AGP slot for my current card)

    Yes it would work. Slowly, but it would work.
