Since the HP8210 does NOT have an AGP port, your only option is a PCI card.

Even if you had an AGP port, you might want / need to use a PCI card.

The latest motherboards cannot operate video cards that are compatible with the older AGP ports.
If you were to buy an 8X AGP card, it likely would NOT work in an older 1X or 2X AGP slot.
Likewise, many 1X, 2X, and 4X AGP cards will not work in some motherboards with 8X AGP slots.
