  1. HP Pavilion Slimline s3320f

    specs:

    Processor: 1 x AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Dual Core 2.6GHz
    Processor Technology: HyperTransport Technology
    Bus Speed: 2000MHz
    Chipset: nVIDIA nForce 430
    Standard Memory: 2GB
    Memory Technology: DDR2 SDRAM
    Memory Standard: DDR2-667/PC2-5300
    Hard Drive: 500GB Serial ATA 7200 rpm
    Optical Drive: DVD-Writer - DVD-RAM/±R/±RW with LightScribe
    Controller: Serial ATA
    Graphics Controller: nVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE 831MB
    Network: Fast Ethernet - IEEE 802.3u
    Ports: 1 x 6-pin mini-DIN (PS/2) Keyboard Rear
    Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
    Case Style: Slim Tower

    I just purchased Windows Vista Ultimate 64 Bit & will be installing that upon arrival.

    In any event, the graphics card that was installed at the factory is supposed to be a poor choice for gaming, but I am not sure what will fit inside this very small tower. Does anyone have any ideas on gaming cards that will fit in this computer?

    Thanks

    The safest bet is an HD 4670. A step up from that would be the HD 4830. Google for dimensions on the latter to make sure it will fit properly in your case.
