It depends on your power supply. Most, but not all PCI e cards require an additional power plug.
I'm not clear on whether you're able to fit a double slot cooler, but if so I'd recommend this.
yes that what it looks like. so is their a better than stock gpu that will fit
Maybe, but that really depends on your power supply.
no the nvidia tnt2 will not fit i tried it to long ?
350w power suply is in it now
single slot gpu thats faster and better than stock for cheep $25-40 ill spend the rest on a better heat sink (amd athlon 64 x2 6000+ 3.1 duel core) the heat sink could be updated cpu gets to 125F around 100% load
