sorry and it only has a 350 watt power supply so if u wanted to get a 7800 u would have to buy another powersupply and that PC only has the max of 1 gig or ram and in the future ull need atleast 2 gigs but 1 gig is good for now.... but i would suggest you look for another pc

You have 950 bucks then? You could build a decent computer with that.

Get a 7800gt video card

Search for a decent motherboard with pcie socket 939

Get a 3700+ (3200+ if you're running out of cash)

Get a decent 500+ watt power supply and a decent case.

get full tower if you are going to get high end graphic cards
