Well obviously you have no clue what we're asking. I would see about finding a friend in real life or someone in a computer shop who knows what the hell they're doing before you even try to open your case to tell us what can fit. If you really don't know all this stuff then you need to learn it.

I actually know, but, some people actually sleep at night:rolleyes:. Well, now I'm up so here it is...

Well someone did ask you what kind of pci slot you have and you told them what case they have, sorry, I didn't want you to open up your case and ruin your computer.

There is a problem, my graphics card is built in to the motherboard. Can I still add one?

Built in? I've never heard of that. Yeah, you can add one, as long as there's another slot for a second video card, and from what I'm getting of this, you don't have one. If you're really desperate, then it's time for a new computer. If you need a new motherboard, you might as well just get a new comp altogether.

Yeah of course I never herd of a computer that doesn't at least have a few PCI slots, PCIex, etc.

gravy666;4202474Built in? I've never heard of that.

He means integrated as in right inside the mother board the card is built in. Most "family" computers have those only as some manufacturers see no need to put a awesome card in for the average non-pc-gaming family who only surfs the internet and plays Solitaire.

Yeah please do as without that I can't help you.

Well with that chipset you should have a pci-ex 16 slot, less dell removed it from the board. And your probably going to need a low profile card. Newegg.com - XFX PVT86SWML4 GeForce 8400GS 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 DMS-59 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card - Retail If so, that will do the trick. But don't expect to much out of that little card there, the 8400 GS's are not the greatest thing, but that would save you from powersupply, case, and probably drive changes to. If you have a PCI-EX slot that thing will be all you need. Just like I said, don't expect much out of it.

As BS mentioned and I linked to, the MB in that system has one Pci Ex 16x slot, what part of that did you miss, it's clear as day? Quoted from the manual in the link I provided: PCI Express connector - one x16 Now, before you ask for further help, please try and not play the dumb and dumber game and at least pay attention to the answers you've already received. Otherwise you're just overcomplicating things.

How much are you looking to spend? I would tell you to get a HD 3850, but i highly doubt that it would fit into a slim tower.
