Windows 7: Upgrading an old card.

Thanks. In that case I think I have an open and convenient one (from the last time I opened this up two days ago). I'll post back tomorrow with which one is open-- thanks so much for all of your help!

In case one of the larger ones is filled, are their recommendations for the smaller sizes named? (I'll take a photo when I get back in case I misidentify, that's one thing I'm a tad paranoid about).

Thanks. I'm sorry if this all seems a little silly: this is my first time working with hardware. I've spent a long time working with software, but my computers have mostly been laptops where the only customization possible was just swapping in and out RAM.

After checking, it looks like my PCIe x16 is open-- so I should be more or less good to go with one of those results, right? I've attached a picture of my motherboard just to make sure. Thanks!
