Even if you upgrade your PSU, your PC still probably doesn't have a PCI Express slot. I don't even think AGP Cards exist anymore.

I did say "probably", as I wasn't sure if it had it or not. Either way, the computer is pretty outdated. I suggest a new MB, CPU, and RAM. Upgrading that computer isn't worth it.
