    ati radeon 9250 and it says agp or pci/e only

    tobins, my suggestion is to replace just the hp case with it's psu & motherboard with a new standard case, psu & a motherboard that has pci/e 16 slot. if you're cpu is a socket 478 then asus does make a board for that that has both onboard video & pci/e 16 slot for videocards. 1 have 1 of those boards just in case a customer's board dies. can use all other parts from hp computer onto new computer as in drives & ram.
