Ok I bought a PC from tigerdirect.com about a year or less ago. Exercising my own ignorance in PC hardware I bought a graphical wimp On top of that the graphics card is built in, or so I'm told. So I'm not even sure I can upgrade the graphics with a new card. I've no idea about specs beyond the print out that came with the computer.
Systemax Venture VX6i Series
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz 3M 1066MHz Processor
3GB DDR2 800MHz PC6400 Memory (2GBx1,1GBx1)
Intel BLKDQ45EK Mini ITX Motherboard
Slim 8X SATA DVDRW
250GB 7200RPM 3G SATA II Hard Drive
Thats how it's printed I've no idea if that helps or not. Can/should I buy a new graphics card?
Yeah you are sort of stuck. I checked that brand out on TigerDirect and they but REALLY small power supplies in them as well. You would have to upgrade that as well in order to accommodate a graphics card. Otherwise you would possibly get a cheap LGA775 motherboard and put it in that case, but you are just throwing money at that same system. Might be a good idea to just save for a budget gamer. I put one together for someone on here for $600 in parts. $700 with the OS and it was an awesome build.
The brand you got seems a little overpriced for what they are selling really.
