Hi There

According to the specs here: http://h10025.www1.h...cname=c00361570

You have NO AGP or PCIe slot - Only PCI so you will have to look for a PCI display adaptor.

These are mainly business machines and NOT really for gaming.

Regards

This is a huge restricting factor... your computer is not made for gaming.
This is about the best PCI card you will find: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814187084
