Your fax modem is taking up the one of three PCI slots. No problem, as you want a pci-e graphics card.

for cheap. I believe i'll get that EVGA e-GeForce 7600 GT CO 256MB DDR3 PCI-E

Oh and to the guy who said mt current card doesn't take up any slots, thanks for clarifying (I didn't know, my computer just said something was taking up one of the PCI slots)

I was also looking at this card
Is that a good one for the price? looks good to me, and it's cheap.

3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.
