Am I correct on this? If so I will just swap it into the PCI slot. I wished it was an AGP or PCI Express card.
PCI graphics cards are slow compared to AGP X 8 or PCI-express. If you are looking at a replacement uATX board then it should still have an AGP x 8 or PCI-e slot for future upgrades. My suggestion would be to stick with the integrated graphics the new board comes with and save the PCI card for troubleshooting. A 5200 pretty much sucks in terms of speed. So buy the board, use the integrated graphics it comes with and look for a new PCI-e or AGP video card later depending on which of those slots (PCI-e or AGP) it comes with.
