    Okay, thank you. I need to know what your power supply is though. The best way to find out is to follow the guide and open up your computer and see. You need to know that wattage and the number of amps on the 12V rail. I will post back when I find more out about your computer. Off to google!

    Its probably a AGP system, Soo what you need is a good AGP card for about 200 dollars possibly less,

    If you buy a budget 100 dollar card you will get budget performance and a slow motion game,

    Also seems like you have a weak PSU , they probably put a 300w in there or soo,

    Youll need min 400w ,, by good vendor like Antec or OCZ ,,,

    We should know the full specs before we suggest anything to him/her though.

    NO AGP

    Model# MBEM100614IM

    EDIT: It has AGP, but also needs a new PSU!
