My System Specs

Default

Yeah, a new gfx card would leave you with an overall decent computer.

Measuring the space you have inside would be the first step. Check both the distance from the base of mobo @ the pcie slot to the case side, as well as the distance from rear of the case where the card will be sitting.

Next step would be to pull the PSU out and give us a screenie of the specs label so that we can try to do some research to see if it's a standard PSU. (Not sure if they're still doing it, but the big box boys like dell, hp, or compaq used to have proprietary PSUs with different pin outs for their mobo connections so it's important that we verify that you can drop a standard PSU into it).

I'll do some googling to see if there's any info on-line on the psu.
