Look at this:


That's what the different slots look like. See if you have a PCI Express slot.

It has a pci-e X1 slot. That's good for putting small goodies like ABIT's wireless lan card in it like I did. But for a vid card it would have a long keyed slot with a locking tab.

Specs for the E310.
I'm sure the 7200le on that system Juice, is the onboard video.

I think highest onboard available for desktop motherboards is like 6200LE

Juice,
Ok I just double checked the specs and you're right. That board uses the Intel integrated video. So it may just be a pci version of the 7200le. Sorry about that. My E521 is an Nvidia board custom made for dell. I slapped in an 8400GS and I'm all happy now.
But as for the poster he's going to have to go that same route. A pci version of a good Nvidia card should not be real pricey and do the job rather well.
