Question about HP Compaq dc5000 Small Form Factor PC Desktop
Hi W Matt - Unfortunately your PC has only PCI slots available, no dedicated video slots like AGP or PCI-e.
You can get a PCI card with better/faster graphics than you have but the difference won't be dramatic.
If you want something to run Windows 7 in full graphics (Aero) mode and some games at medium settings I would recommend a card using the Nvidia 8400gs chipset. It's a fairly inexpensive card made by many manufacturers and won't put a strain on your systems small power supply.
You must remember that you need a PCI card that is also a low profile version.
I've created a search for what you need at Newegg (an online seller) and you can view the kind of card you need HERE.
