simple answer no it cannot....the motherboard on that pc only has a pcie x1 slot this card requires at least a pcie x16 slot...also the pc is small form factor and the card is regular size

this would be something that would work with your system but I cant guarantee that it would fit in your case because your case is tiny..

why do you want to upgrade your gpu? the only option you have to upgrade to will not be able to play games or really do anything that an integrated gpu couldnt

ahh yea in my opinion it wouldn't be worth the upgrade. You will be highly disappointed...the only benefit you will see is that it will free up your system ram which might make your PC a little quicker but I doubt it. It wouldn't be worth the 65 dollars or so. I would just save that money and put it towards a whole new pc when you can scrape all the cash together
