There's not enough clearance to put a vid card worth anything in there. Plus you have to take in to consideration any gaming type card is going to suck the life out of your power supply.
BTW the nvidia geforce 9200 it has is the built in video chip.

You can buy a low end nvidia card or ati card in there, a GT620/6670 single slot card.

You might be able to shove in a 7750 or a GT640 if you are into doing some case mods for airflow, that little vent at the top isn't enough for a high power card.

Thats what i was wondering since theres an empty slot but i dont know which one to get.
And no mods, since theres a slot for graphics i just wanted to put one in there but i didnt know it needed all these things too haha

Unrelated to his ^, I have a asus m5a88-m mother board. I understand that the graphics card is built in and I cannot use it in conjunction with another graphics card to support more than two monitors.
1. How do I find out how many graphics cards it can support?
2. What type should i get (this is not for gaming I just need at least 3 monitors)?
