make sure to check your pc doesn't have a m-atx motherboard first though as the graphics cards are all integrated and cant be removed other than that yeh just open your pc take out the old card and insert the new one boot your pc and install any drivers needed plus IMHO you cant go wrong with an good mid to top end nvidia card they can play most things without issues

All you need to do is make sure its not a micro ATX MOBO, then find a good Mid end card like a NVIDIA GTS 250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130513. Thats a decent card that should work on your MOBO and your Power Supply. Just browse around newegg or tigerdirect and find something along the lines of that. Then pull out the old card, and put new one in (MAKE SURE TO GET ALL STATIC OFF HANDS, USE EITHER ESD WRISTBAND OR KEEP HAND ON METAL PART OF CASE) next install the new drivers then you should be good to go. HINT Upgrading your RAM could be a good idea to :smile:

There is no point buying a high end graphics card if your CPU can't handle it. What is your CPU?
