Need help with video card compatibility

Hi, I am trying to figure out if my computer is compatible with the EVGA GeForce 9500 GT Video Card but the thing is im not that great with all the computer tech and stuff so when i look things up on google its all these things that i have no clue what they are talking about. So if possible could someone walk me through the necessary steps to check if my computer is compatible?

    Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard

    Chipset: Intel i915P/i915G rev. B1
    Southbridge: Intel 82801FB (ICH6)
    LPCIO: SMSC SMSC
  5. you on a laptop? then you stuck with it cuz laptop graphics cards cant be changed cept in the very expensive ones
  6. nope im on a PC
  7. Well, the Model # 0968h seems to point to the HP Desktop dc7100. The problem is, there are three versions of that system:

    1) Ultra-Slim - Has one available full height PCI slot
    2) Small Form Factor - Has one available low-profile PCI-Ex16 slot
    3) Convertible Mini-Tower - Has one available full height PCI-Ex16 slot

    The question is, which do you have?

    Take a look at these system images and see if you can tell us which one (if any) you have.
