I just bought this on ebay and the onboard video sucks. Will it take a PCIe card? If so I'm thinking of something with the Nvidia Geforce 7600 GT set
- if not does anyone have suggestions? It's a general purpose machines - not into high end games.

Thanks

My System

Does the mobo have a PCI-e slot? if not it wont run the 7600GT.

If it has a AGP slot then a 6800 Series card will do nice.
