no it just doesnt in your case. there wouldnt be enough bandwidth for the graphics card since you have pci-e 1. even if it is pci-e3 1x, you will never get enough bandwidth to sustain a graphics card.

does it have an AGP slot ?.............. or does it have a standard pci slot ?

any modern graphics card uses a pci-e slot. AGP is pretty much dead

thanks for the worthless response. he says he doesn't have a pci-e slot........that was already stated................... so if he doesn't have that you can still buy a video card for a pci slot or and agp slot if he has one. all those games should run in dx9 mode albeit not the greatest but maybe he can't buy a newer set up.

go to newegg.com. go to computer hardware/video cards/desktop graphics/..( look under "advanced" in the narrow results category up in top left ).. go to interface/PCI............. see if you can find a decent card there.

you won't have great performance but if you cannot build another machine right now something will be better than nothing.

Best solution
