    I recently acquired (rental) an HP Pavilion Slimline s7600 to replace my older gaming computer as an easy alternative. The RAM is terrible, but I've got that issue handled - what I need help on is upgrading the video card.
    It's currently running on an on-board GeForce 6150 LE, which, while passable, just cannot get the job done on the long-term.

    What I'm hoping for help with is the what and if about upgrading the video card in this miniature thing. I've taken a look inside it, and maybe I missed it, but I'm left dumbfounded as to where I could actually install one, which left me to wonder: can I? Would I need a whole new motherboard (or computer) instead?

    Case, point, final question: I'm a pretty frequent gamer, and this video card isn't going to cut it. I'm renting this computer, so, before I invest too deeply into it (the only thing stopping me is this one issue) I want to get a professional opinion as to the options I have for this particular system. I'm only noticing three slots here, two for RAM, one for the telephone line.

    Would I be able to upgrade and just buy a new video card for it? What options would I be looking at? Is there such a thing as a new motherboard with an onboard card that doesn't suck, if not? I've not really upgraded much computer-wise for a long time due to financial restraints, so I'm well behind the times.
