Need help installing a video card!
 
:help:I tried to put a Nvidia Geforce 8400GS into my SiS 661fx/gx motherboard type chipset but it wouldn't fit. The card is too big and the ports are too small. On the box it said that it was PCI Express Is this your bus type? I guess I ignored that part and just bought it on the spot because the price was low and the specs could do the job for the couple of games I have that could probably support it. This is what the box looks like.

It is a Foxconn motherboard. I don't know what the :censored: I should do! There is 3 white ports I tried to plug it into and they were too small. There was a darker one and it didn't fit. I need a different type of card. Do I get PCI, AGP or what? AGP won't fit either I checked. I'm thinking just a PCI should do. I'm bringing back the card to Best Buy tomorrow and see what happens.

The Foxconn with the SiS 661fx/gx chipset you have has only an AGP slot. And the GeForce you bought needs a PCI Express slot. You need to return the GeForce and find one that supports an AGP slot. Do you know the exact model of your motherboard?
