I recently purchases a HP Pavilion Slimline s5000 Series.. model No. s5613w. I also recently recieved Starcraft II for an early x-mas present but upon downloading I did not meet system requirements with my graphics card. I am currently using a ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics card which came in the computer. I asked around about upgrading the card but many retailers told me it would be difficult to find a proper card to fit my machine. Does anyone know what graphics card my HP Slimline can use.. because I dont want to buy the worng card..|
thank you so much!

Riceer, the truth is that Slimline models are not meant to be upgraded. The small case does not allow for good airflow. Another problem is the power supply unit (PSU); 220W. It will be difficult to get a card that will run the game that you mentioned with the existing PSU.
