    I looked up the model for your computer and it does contain a pci-e 16 slot on it so all cards are open. However that computer is seriously dated in terms if internal hardware and would not be worth investing to much into. Can you give us an idea what you want to accomplish with it.

    I agree with @GhostRyder, a single core CPU is dated for PC usage regardless of maker. I don't think a GPU upgrade would give much better performance. In the end you would probably be better off getting a quad core(Intel dual core) system based on current tech. I'm not trying to talk you into anything, if anything I'm trying to talk you out of wasting your money. And just think if you spent on a good APU system, you would have better integrated graphics than anything your current system would process.
