Alright, I took a look at your computer and there are some issues. The first one is that you only have a 220W power supply, so there are virtually no graphics cards that will run on it.

I'm actually not quite sure which one would run, so I don't know if a GT 545 or a HD 6670 would run or if you would need more of a GT 440 or HD 6570. Not quite sure, maybe someone else knows?
