    the card is most likely a agp card.
    yet your motherboard doesnt have a agp slot.

    either get a new motherboard...
    or take the card back and find a decent pci card.

    im going out on a limb and assuming thats not 700$ US dollars.

    What motherboard you got?

    Most likely you need a graphics card that uses a PCI slot. You can use a GeForce2 MX 200 or 400, or a GeForce4 MX 420. You can also use an ATI Radeon 7000. All will work fin. ATI will be releasing a card based on their R250 core. This will be like an MX version of their 8500 (full DX 8.1 capability, but only 2 pixel pipelines). It will likely be avaluable in PCI.

    Those are most of your options unless you can grab an older card used. Even a nice Voodoo3 works great. I got one in my second machine (Duron 900Mhz) and it still runs great (at 800x600 resolution).
