So I've opened up my computer and I wanna know if these 2 cards will fit inside. I can't really tell which PCI slot is the one to use.

Graphics Controller
Type Integrated
Graphics Processor / Vendor NVIDIA GeForce 7050

Furthermore, the specs say the currents graphics card is intergrated. Will I be able to remove it?

Thanks

Your motherboard only has 1 PCIe slot for video (the longest one in your pictures), so you will only be able to connect one video card. Both of the cards you linked above will work, but again, you can only attach 1 of them. As for the onboard graphics, you will not be able to remove that as it is a chip that is a part of the motherboard.

Either card you linked will fit in the motherboard. But not both cards at the same time. You have one PCIe x16 size slot - It's the second slot from the right on your first picture.

Even though the 7750 graphics card doesn't require an auxiliary power connector, you should still make sure your PSU is adequate since this system appears to be very low power and may have a very low power PSU. What exact PSU do you have? Can you take a pic of the sticker?

Also - I can't tell if it's a 'slim' case or a normal-width mATX case. If you want to make sure it fits in your case, you could grab a low-profile 7750 like this one (EDIT: I mean this one): http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11202-10-20G-Profile-G...

Or just measure the width of your case.

hey mate , as previously said u have only one PCI-E for grafics and yes its the longest one, it will play just fine as long as u give it power ,i mean check the cards power requirement and the power outlet of ur PSU,or u will end with unexpected shutdowns,as larkspur said.. :)  As for the fittings there are some measuments and dimensions in Details of the card,test it.

Hey thanks for the answers guys. I've taken a pic of the sticker but the camera quality isn't so good. I can tell you it says output is 250W, that seems a bit weak. Will it be able to run the cards anyway? If not, what's my best solution??

A 250W PSU won't be enough, I'd suggest upgrading to at least a 600W PSU. The video cards you linked above each need around a 450-500W PSU to run them and a typical PC, so a 600W will give you enough juice to power either one and give you some room to grow later on.

Ok sounds good. Any suggestions on a good 600W PSU in the UK (off Amazon or whatever)? Do they all fit any computer?

Edit: Also, with a new graphics card a PSU how much better will gaming experience be? Would there be anything else to upgrade as well?

The physical size should be roughly the same no matter which you go with, so fitting it into your case shouldn't be a problem. I recommend going with Antec, Corsair, Thermaltake or eVGA for the brand, and I also suggest trying to find one with an 80+ certification (gold or platinum would be best). The 80+ certification just means that it is a tested and approved energy saving device. A modular PSU is a good idea to go with too, as you will only have the cables that you actually need in the case, without he extra unused cables taking up extra space.

Here's a link to a quick search I did on Amazon.co.uk that will get you heading in the right direction:

The graphics card should improve your gaming by a good bit, but the PSU only helps in the sense that you need it to power the video card. Aside from that, the cheapest upgrade you can do that will help a fair amount would be to upgrade your RAM.

Thanks man you've sorted me out. Appreciate it.

Edit: Just one more question, what's the difference between the 2 graphics cards I linked in the opening post? And are they both good for these system requirements?

Either should be fine for those requirements, but I would suggest going with the Asus card. I've never heard of the other brand, and Asus makes quality products.

That system with a 7750 won't need more than a 350w PSU. Getting a 600w is a waste unless you are going to build a new computer with it soon. Here's a quality (non-modular) 380w: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-S12II-380-ATX12V-Stand...

edit: and here's a nice modular: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Be-Quiet-Pure-Power-L8-CM/dp/B0...

Your system is based on a Core 2 CPU which is an older cpu that struggles in newer cpu-intensive games. However, a 7750 looks like a good match (tons and tons better than your integrated graphics). The only diff between those two cards is that the Asus is clocked @820mhz while the PowerColor is clocked @800mhz. The Asus should be slightly faster (but so slight that its almost unnoticeable).
