When i first purchased the HP A1130n from Best Buy, i wanted to integrate a Radeon x700 as my video card. The Geek Squad person told me that the desktop does not support pci-express video cards. so here i am with the integrated xpress 200 chip, and im wondering if the PC indeed has a PCI-express card or if i should just return the computer for a comp. with a pci-express card.

Thanks

Well the best way to tell is to pop open the case and look. From the specs I read it does have a PCI Express slot onboard, most likely a PCI Express 16X.
