As long as your motherboard supports your the new video card there will be no problems. To verify this, check with your motherboard's manufacturer or call your computer supplier and have your new card installed. There are many types of video card slots that might get confusing, so better check first before buying anything.

To name some are PCI-Express x16 for recent devices and are the most commonly used nowadays. PCI-Express x1 slots are also available few years back. AGP and PCI half a decade ago. Each exceeds the speed of the earlier generation devices. And since you’re installing a new card, remember to check and install new drivers appropriate for the new cards.

I don’t see any problem if you wish to replace your 1 GB ATI graphics adapter with something like NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT. This graphics adapter supports PCIe or PCI Express so you better check if your motherboard supports PCI Express because it doesn’t fit on a regular PCI card slot. The NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT graphics adapter supports NVIDIA SLI Technology.

This provides twice the performance of a single GPU configuration to deliver an unequaled gaming experience. The NVIDIA SLI Technology permits 2 graphics adapters to run in parallel. It also supports NVIDIA HybridPower Technology which allows you to switch between your NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT and the NVIDIA GeForce GPU on your motherboard. This is useful when you are running applications that are not heavy on the graphics to experience a quiet, lower power PC.

But to use the NVIDIA HybridPower Technology support on your video card, you must also have an NVIDIA HybridPower-enabled motherboard. Other technologies supported are NVIDIA PhysX-Ready, NVIDIA CUDA Technology, and NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology.
