@ ThrashZone

No disrespect intended, but I have not seen a visible PCI-E slot available that the MSI card will fit properly into

Do I need to post a side view of the opened-up tower? My computer guy said there was an AGP slot when he looked inside. Said, in fact, that I should have purchased an AGP card??

Yep I guess Doc wants a better pic looking straight down where the card goes,
Cheers.

Post 53 looks like a white standard PCI slot next to the side of the case. The slot below that one seems to be obscured by the position of the HD that is mounted with some sort of bracket. If there is a brown AGP slot there that is slightly longer to the right of the white PCI slot, then YES the computer tech was correct about AGP. But, if so, the AGP card would need to be half height (low profile) & the short bracket. I have not seen a PCI-E slot yet in this slimline computer.


Here is another snip of the different types of slots

Here are some pics I just took of a standard low profile PCI video card. I found a half height bracket that would let it be installed in a slimline case.

Someone is going to have to tell me in words what I'm supposed to do with the purple arrows in post #59. I'm afraid I'm gonna break something...

Here is the actual slot. The tower is on its side.
Where does one find a hex wrench small enough to remove the faceplace on that video card? Doll house supply store?

The two Blue plastic tabs marked # 1 in the black & white diagram I circled in purple look like they should be able to be pushed slightly in a direction that would cause the HardDrive to lift upwards. Then at the bottom end of the HD there looks to be about a 1.5 inch piece of curved metal (circled in Lime Green ) that is hooked to the back of the case. But it should lift away from the case with a slight upward tilted motion. Then if the HD can just be moved enough to get a pic of the area that has been hidden from view under it just might reveal the second motherboard slot. Be careful of the HD power cable & Data cable ( circled in Yellow ). These cables can be disconnected if necessary, like when you are replacing the HD. They are key coded with a small notch so they can be connected re-connected if necessary.

So far you have a grade of A in your work in this thread

You don't need to remove the rear faceplate.

VGA video cable is circled in Aqua. Serial printer connection in Purple. Old type Com port in Green.

The actual video is built into the motherboard on this slimline, so there is NO video card to remove.
