    Your first problem is getting a card to fit in the slim case that will max game settings.

    The second problem is the power supply unit, which is nearly always a proprietary PSU. It would be nearly impossible to replace a proprietary PSU with one that would power a high-end graphics card.

    Are you the guy with the Celeron D? I think you need to either lower your expectations, or raise your budget (to fit in a whole new build).

    Would the motherboard from the slimline actually fit in an ATX case? If not you may have troubles finding a case for the motherboard.

    I agree with stickman, it may be time for a completely new machine.

    Windows 7? Good luck finding compatible drivers for your motherboard and graphics card. ;)
