Windows 7: Slow com

The CPU is fine. But there is definitely something wrong with your GPU.

That thing is way to hot.
Are your fans working properly?

Google the model, and you'll find a bunch of people with overheating issues.
You may want to check the heatsink. A few people have posted that by cleaning it they're able to get the temps back to normal.

That may be the reason for your computer's slowdown. Was it ever operating properly?
Also, what are you trying to do with your computer?

YouTube - GPU heatsink + thermal paste removal and reapplication
How to Clean a Computer Heat Sink: How to Clean a Computer | eHow.com

Those guides aren't specialized for your computer. However, I would assume that the procedures are similar. You may have to remove a few screws and whatnot. I would consult your computer's manual(Check online for it) for information on how to dissemble it( It should have the info, if my laptop's manual had it, your desktop's manual should too).

I don't think it should be too difficult, but you may want to wait for one of the "Seven Guru". They may be able to help more than I can.

Also, if your warranty is still valid, you could probably call HP and harass them to fix it for you.

Awesome!

Now you just make sure that it doesn't get clogged up again.

You could also get a cheap discrete GPU. That should perform way better than your current one, and not get clogged with dust.

Bad Performance gets Boo'd off stage.

If you wanted an add-in graphics card, I'm not sure what to recommend. Your 300W PSU is supposed to be adequate for cards that use the nVidia GTS 240 graphics chip. Such cards don't need an auxiliary PCI-E power connection. Cards based on the ATI 4670 or 5670 chipset supposedly want 400W PSUs, even though they, like the GT 240, draw all their power through the PCI-E slot (75W maximum). The 5670 is a DX11 card, but I'm not sure that makes it more future-proof than the others. My favorite resource for checking out graphics cards is the power search option at Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!. I tend to believe that the ATI cards give the best performance for the price, but I prefer nVidia's drivers. (This is all subjective; I haven't studied it.)

THats all the info on your PC +240 I could find.

Still, I'd wait for someone else's opinion before doing anything. Google can only get you so far.
