    We need the make and model of the pc to check, providing you purchase the correct graphics card there's not normally a problem.

    As we have no idea on what motherboard you have in that (Dell?) computer, or even what model Dell it is thyat would allow us to determine that, we cannot really advise if it is capable of accepting a "better graphics card" to advise on compatability issues.

    A little detail would help a lot!

    No you cannot upgrade your graphics much, you have no agp slot. I wouldnt use pci unless you really need faster graphics.

    Yes thankyou, I have found out from the model info you gave us that you have onboard graphics and no agp slot, any graphics upgrade will limited to a pci graphics card.
    You will need to confirm this info before purchasing a new card.

    Of course, there's no certainty that the PCI video card will be as fast as the on-board graphics! :rolleyes:
