I posted something along these lines about last week but i didnt specify that it was a slimline model.

This is the system i have unfortunatly heres the link

Don't flame me :p 

http://answers.walmart.com/answers/1336/product/1234723...

Dont laugh i know i got it from walmart but it was cheap for what i originally needed it for but now i need to play games on it :) 

AMD Athlon II dual-core processor
4gb RAM
Nvidia 6150se.
500gb HDD

I know im gonna need to upgrade the psu.

Is there any card that is even worth spending the money to upgrade it. I play Aion on this thing and its running a onboard 6150 se so it looks terrible.

I'm gonna build another pc but i need something better for this one for the fiance we want to play together.

Was looking at the Radeon 4870 originally but i think the width would be a little to much.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for you time in advance.

These slim line PC's have severe fitting issues with normal cards. I dont know what would fit coz i dont know the depth of the cabinet.

Also, which AMD dual core processor? RAM config would be helpful.

Well your processor wont get you very far, its barely faster than a Celeron, wont play multi-threaded games at all.. Word of advice, don't get these piled up configs. They are a waste.

To your questions, you don't have much option. Keep it as a secondary PC, save some money and get a a new one.
