Depends on which chipset is in it according to here,

Lenovo Support - Detailed specifications - ThinkCentre 8123

If it has the 915G in it then you can put in just about any PCI-E card you want, budget allowing. If it is the 915GV, it looks like all it came with was a couple of PCI slots and no PCI-E slot, which makes it not really worth doing.

If it does have the PCI-E slot, then you would also need a new power supply for it as the listed 230W power supply will not be enough for even a low end card. You can see the board layout here,

Lenovo Support - System board diagram - ThinkCentre A51 (type 8122, 8123, 8124, 8131, 8133, 8134, 8135, 8136, 8137, 8138, 9212) / M51e (type 9213)

#11 is the slot you're looking for.
