I have a shitty emachines desktop and i want a very simple graphics update but i dont see a slot for a card to go in. is there anyway i can upgrade the graphics without a PCI slot? I Cant even play my favorite game minecraft.

From what i've found, it only has a pci-e 1x slot, so that's what you're limited to.
I may be wrong, but there's barely any info on that on google.

there are video cards on the pci ex X1 slot, you have 4 options on newegg.ca, cheapest is a 59$ Nvidia ION. but from what I see you have a geforce 8200 ugpu., pretty good if you would lower the resolution to minimum. have you tried that?
