Default New Computer Question

Hello,

I am looking into buying a new PC I have picked thos one out and I have a question on the video card/video memory. It has 224mb video memory and I am thinking of putting in a 256MB GDDR3 memory

BFG GeForce 7800 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card would it be possible to put this in my new computer?

Your 224Mb is memory (RAM) It is not video memery. Yours is a shared 32MB. You can go with it. But, does it has a PCI-Express x16 interface?
