Older video cards or cards for older, modest systems come with an AGP which is designed solely for graphics. However most quality cards now come in PCI and PCIexpress formats.
The highest quality video cards can set you back as much as $1000+ but if you aren't a gamer or graphics guru, there is no need for it. Most motherboards come with some form of on-board video, and that may be all you need for basic functions and displays.
Choosing a video card approaches science in its complexity. See HERE
for some examples.
