It has 1 PCIe x16 slot but with the ATI onboard video I would go with a ATI card to avoid driver compatibility issues.
You'll also need a larger Power Supply wattage will depend on the card selected.
Do you have a full size case or a Slim line mini case?
If this is a branded system like a HP what brand and model?

Yes, I have a full size case.
No, my PC is not branded, its assembled.

Upgradig the powersupply is no problem but I would also like to mention that I would be upgrading my PC within the next 2 years and it will be the best available config (THEN) for gaming.
I wouldn't want to buy a new graphics card then.
I prefer to go with nvidia because of its better performance than other cards of the same price tag.
That is why I wanted to know its compatibility with my present PC configuration.
Also please give me the exact wattage required for the nvidia graphics card.
