Your computer system will determine what graphics card you can use. Please post your computer particulars as requested in 'Please Read Before Posting' or just look at my posted specs. Then you will get all the advice you can stand.

Sadly, with that computer, you are severly limited. Higher performance cards consume alot more power and benefit most when paired with a higher performance processor/motherboards. Depending on your circumstances, you might be best served by looking for a new/refurbished desktop from a reputable supplier (warranty reasons). Microcenter, Tiger Direct, Fry's etc.
