PCI slots are used for other cards, those video cards should use PCIe, which most (cheaper) motherboards only have one of.
The slot should be black, with the PCIs (the ones you can't use) being white.

~Lordbob
I have 2 white pci solts and 4 blue and black pci connectors
Do they have any slots in them? PCIe slots should have a small section near the back of the case, then a longer one on the motherboard side.
The black one is a PCIe slot, and the white ones are PCI slots.

Check out this one on Amazon Amazon.com: Used and New: PNY VCG961024GXEB GeForce 9600 GT 1024MB DVI + DVI Graphics Cards $69.99 2 New. Also if you'd provide your motherboard model # it would help you can use this program for specs if you don't know the # http://www.piriform.com/speccy You'll also need an SLI bridge, sometimes they can be hard to find but I know a couple of places to get one. As well as PCI-e power connections this I'm unsure of so your power supply may come into play, if it has the connections and has the watts / amps to run 2 cards. So please llist your PSU in system specs. Thanks Fabe

You were willing to pay $150 for the 9600GT and the GTX460 is $199 and you could probably get $45-50 for your 9600GT.
I bought a 9600GT for $45 a couple of months ago to run my 3rd screen.
My 9600GT is sitting in a box since I sold my GTX285 and bought an HD5850.

the 9600gt was 64.99 at staples they had alot on clerance yesterday besides that why bother getting two 9600gt when one card can do it with eyefinity might as well drop atleast 200+ on a decent gpu with a option to upgrade later

how long you expect to be playing games on that gpu when they come out with more complex ways and style of gaming software?

also since your running a nvidia board you might as well throw some cash out there cause honestly nvidia is really expensive
