Your motherboard lacks PCI-e X16 slot. You can't use any graphics card with it. The only option you have is to upgrade your motherboard to a PCI-E x16 equipped motherboard

Dude thats technology. Pciex is the current and future. You have to upgrade. I have agp cards so doesn't mean i should blame technology for not retaining agp till now.

They made that motherboard for regular office use. eliminating non essential features (for office use) helps in keeping the costs down. BTW GT210 (MSI N210) is a useless graphics card, it can't even run games released 6 years ago properly.

Can you specify the thread where forum members suggested that board? not accusing you of anything, just wanted to see who suggested that board.

Sell your current motherboard and buy this:

Gigabyte GA-H61M-S1
Gigabyte GA-H61M-S1 Motherboard - Gigabyte : Flipkart.com


ps: just a friendly advice, try to avoid using sms language. Gives wrong impression (immature person) and makes it difficult to read.

Physical PCI Express X16 cards can still work with PCI Express slots having less physical lanes, provided the slot is an open ended slot.

You can mod the PCI Express slot you have if you want to still fit in the graphic card. modding PCI-E 1x to open end

and oh btw, your built-in Intel HD 2000 is already faster than or equal to nVidia GT 210 card. GT 210 is a rubbish card.
