pci vs pci-express
my son just ordered an nvidia 6600le video card so he can play call of duty 2. apparently he ordered a PCI-E card instead of regular PCI. he doesn't have an AGP slot. can a PCI card slot be converted to a PCI-E slot?

If he has a PCI-E card it will not work in PCI slot and vice versa.
PCI is the old standard before AGP, PCI-E is the new standard replacing AGP.
List the PC specs and what motherboard.

Do they even make a PCI version of that card? And if the PC does not have PCIe OR AGP it must be pretty old - 5 or 6 years? Which means that modern games will likely need more than just a graphics card upgrade. (Although I have a PCI-only PIII at home which would probably take a 1GHz CPU and be playable at least)
