As is you have integrated graphics, you`d have to pop open the case, but I`m sure you have a pci express slot in there. What year was this pc built. AGP is quite old.

Some graphics nowadays are even built into the cpu ( I hear ) it`s gettin outta hand. Pop off the side and look for a long odd colored slot, black, blue, green etc.

PCI slots are white.

This is a shot of a pci express slot.

It's been my experience that the colors vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and even model to model. The PCI slots are white on my M2N68 but light blue on my M4N68. APU is the new term for a CPU/GPU combo chip. My advice is to download the manual to be sure of what slots are on your motherboard. The specific make and model number of the motherboard should be silk screened onto it somewhere. It may be between the slots so you may have to remove an add-in card to see it.
