Hello everyone

Well, here is my computer:

And this is the Motherboard for my computer:

Well seeing as I'm not very good with all of the technical terms when it comes to computers, I was just wondering which type of graphics card I can put into my computer? If someone could give me some examples that would be great too.

Thanks

Andy

You cannot put a video card in that computer. Even if you could, you would need a new power supply, but you can't, there is no pci-e slot.

Never buy Gateway. They are so cheap they left the pci-e connector off the motherboard to save 50 cents. Then they put in a 180w power supply (lol) which isn't even powerful enough to power a cpu upgrade.

I see. Thank you for your time. Say for example if i were to buy a new Motherboard so that I could insert a better graphics card, would I have to reinstall Windows 7?

Thanks again.
