Hello,

 

Your computer/motherboard does have:

 

Expansion Slots:

 

  • 1 PCI Express x16 2.0 slot for graphics card, support video card (2.0, 2.1)
  • 3 PCI Express x1 slots
  • 1 PCI Express x1 minicard slot

 

You can use any kind nVidia or ATI video card you want, you have to upgrade you power supply, only if going to install high-end graphics card.

 


 

The specifications for your PC indicate a 460Wwatt power supply.  Open up your PC and read the lablel on the power supply to to make sure that is the correct size.

 

Nvidia  Geforce GTX 560 video card will need a 500+ watt power supply. As a precaution, you will need to do some measuring inside you PC to make sure that the card will fit.

 

Hope this helps?
