Problem in Installing Video Card in Asus K8v-mx

I really need your help.  I am trying to finish installing my video card but I can't seem to. 

I tried to upgrade to an ATI driver but nothing seems to happen.  It goes back to normal after starting up again.  My computer is quite old, it's an Asus K8v-mx, with a 2 gigabyte memory.  My monitor is an HD 4650 Radeon.  What should I do?

Hi,
 
What you referred to as the monitor is actually a graphics processing unit also known as a video card or graphics card. The Radeon HD 4650 uses a PCI Express x16 interface to get connected to the system.
 
Looking at your motherboard’s specification reveals that it does not have a PCI Express x16 interface but instead has the older AGP interface. This effectively makes the graphics card unusable for your motherboard.
 
Get a video card that uses an AGP connection, or upgrade your motherboard to be able to make use of that graphics card.
 
Thank you. Hope this helps with your current predicament.
