Upgrading graphics card

Hello,

I just bought a new computer, which can be found here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm wondering whether it's possible to upgrade the graphics card? I bought Sonic Generations, and on the lowest settings I can run it, but it sort of chugs along. What's the cheapest graphics card I could buy that would make it run smoothly that's compatible with my desktop?

Thanks a lot!

I didn't see the power supply on the specs. What power supply is it?

If you want a discrete card you will need a new power supply as well.
What is your resolution, and what games are you wanting to play/ performance do you want? It also doesn't specify pciex16 slot for the card, can you take a look and confirm this?

The 6570, or any GPU that doesn't require a power connection from the PSU should run.
