    Hello all. I'm thinking of purchasing a Wacom tablet , the Cintig 21 UX , and it says that I have to have a graphics card that will support more than one monitor. Right now my monitor plugs into my motherboard so I guess my video card is part of the motherboard. I do have one more open slot , but I'm not sure how to identify it. The empty slot thats on the motherboard is a black one and it has only one divider to it thats aprox one sixth of the total size. The Wacom spec's say it needs a DVI or VGA connection and a USB port , and I have extra USB ports. My computer is a HP Media Center PC ( m7760n ) it's a year old with 2 gig's of ram - the display I have now is a HP w22 flat display. I need help to get the right graphics card ( I think the slot in my pc is a PCI slot but I'm not sure ) . I have CS3 Photoshop that I'm useing now. What and how do I do to go about getting the right stuff to make this all work ? Thanks for any help ! George

    Here are the specs for your PC (HP is always the best place to look first, they have good info on each model).

    Looks like you have a spare PCI express x 16 slot.
