I was curious what graphics card could i upgrade to with this computer I believe it has a pci xpress x16 slot but I'm not sure the version or what cards would fit or be useable I enjoy gaming and unfortunately I dont think the integrated card will work well...
if anyone could suggest a card or help me id really appreciate it. I havent been able to find any real decent print out of specs for this pc or its pci xpress slot.
I have the out of the box power supply I believe its a 300 watts I deally id like to spend about 150 on a card my understanding the specs of my pc are somthing as followed from what ive been able to piece together
if i knew how to upload a photo id take a picture of the slot in my pc and post it.

hey there Tom, The reason you generally would like to use a low profile card is beciase of the simple fact it takes less space insde the case allowing more upgrades to the unit. Also the serice mentioned does have a good size case but insde is still a bit small. Also to the person looking to buy one I would check out the places below for the card.
