you need a PCI express slot. A regular pci slot will not do the trick.

Also the x800xl is a sh!tter. Go for nvidia 6600gt.

I can't seem to find it. How old is this computer?

Also, have you opened the case before?

It looks like you have got a PCI-Express Port from the information on the internet (SOny has the worst online data and support information ever!!!!)

If you are planning on spending the same amount of money buy a 6800GT not a X800XL. It will last you a while longer than a 6600GT.

Why did you Buy a SOny???
