Check what you computer says it has. Some have a dual combo most newer cpu,s don't . If its new within a couple years more than likely a PCIe. If its much older pci . There is a difference in the connector that slids into the slot. PCIe cards have a smaller connect I believe. So go online and look for the connector and see for yourself. If its not a HDaccel just HD its pci . PCIe is only Accel I believe ,but I could be wrong. But pci can be Accel to so that doesn't really help .
