It helps to know what kind of computer you have, whether prebuilt or custom built.

But in this day and age you can basically buy any video card and put it in your computer and it'll be fine.

The PCI-Ex16 (x4 spec) slot is normally used for the secondary graphics card of a dual-card system or, if necessary, any other (PCI-Ex1) expansion card. If you have an available PCI-Ex16 (x16 spec) slot, you should always install your graphics card into this slot.

Without knowing exactly what pre-built Gateway computer (model #), it's unwise to make a recommendation.

Product Specs Sheet

Your system apparently has one PCI-Ex16 2.0 (x4) slot and one PCI-Ex1 slot. Given the case size, you would be limited to low-profile/half-height cards. Given your low-end, 220 watt power supply, you're looking at only the very low-end graphic cards, none of which will give you the performance you're looking for.

Recommendation: None (sorry).
