No you cannot install PCI-Express card into PCI slot. You'll need a Motherboard that supports x16 PCI-Express slot.

thank you for the clear quick reply....
im glad the card comes in AGP as well, but what budget motherboard would you recommend for me if i were to change?
I have a pentium 4 2.0ghz chip...and ddr memory...would i have to change these as well???

Thanks

no you would not have to change the cpu an ddr mem although i would suggest a decent motherboard such as an abit ic7 max 2 or 3 if you can still get em or a asus p4c800-e deluxe also if you can still get em
