Yes you can upgrade anything on any computer, you just got to make sure that the parts are compatable for the computer.

Yeah, it has a slot on the motherboard, but it's being taken up by the 7300 LE. You can just pull the card out. If you want to upgrade to something high end, then you will probably need a new PSU (Power Supply Unit).... Higher end cards nearly always need more power than the lower end ones, and most of the time, PC Manufacturers use a PSU which is the bare minimum for what you need.

thank you all for you help/replies.. but another question.. well two i guess.. is a 8800 any diff than 7300 in terms of compatablitiy? since they are same manufacture and such.. and about this PSU.. are they pretty much universal? an d i just need to find one with 500watt,, or will i have to look for other things on it? thanks again for the help

edit: for compatability i mean for the motherboard, will i have any problems or would it take a 8800 just as easy as 7300
