NO!

Dell is a TERRIBLE BRAND!!

Not only is that a cheap, terrible machine barely fit to run Windows XP, it probably doesn't have anything but a couple of PCI slots since it is so cheap.

Dell is not a bad brand, they're very reliable. They're not the best gaming computers, but they're not bad computers.

I believe the answer to your question notorious is no it does not have an expansion slot for a video card.

i wouldnt go for a dell , not only they use cheap parts they also use proprietary parts , their pcs are good only for basic use not for gaming , your better of buying parts seperatly from newegg/zipzoomfly/mwave and connect em together or pay a tech a small fee to do it for you , when you buy all the parts yourself its usally cheaper+you know exactly what your getting unlike buying a dell

Maybe in the business world. Certainly not the consumer models.

Dell's workstations are pretty reliable, true, but their Consumer computers (Dimensions and XPS') are overpriced, underpowered, and use a lot of crap proprietary parts. Even their memory is proprietary; you can usually only buy a few compatible sticks for a given machine. I wouldn't buy a Dell.
