    It's pretty much impossible to change graphics cards on AIO PC's, you can't just plug in a normal PCI-E desktop GPU. Unfortunately that's one of the downsides of buying them.

    You do have a choice of attaching a TV. If you have an HDMI connection you might be able to use that. Like many laptops, you can't change that video chip. It is not a removable card

    I'm afraid that I as well have to sing the same song as both slh28 and Tmagic are signing! And that is with the type of computer you picked out, a video card change out is almost next to impossible! So I hate to say your basically stuck with what you've got. I guess possibly go with the option that Tmagic brought up, maybe run with HDMI and see what that does for you!
