    will a Nvidia GeForce 9200 graphics card run this game?

    It may run it, but only on very low settings/etc. The GF 9200 is an older card that was low-end when new .

    Double the pixels of a 1920x1200 monitor = yummy graphics! I do love my eye candy...

    It depends on what model it is specifically. If it's a normal ATX/mATX case and not a slim-desktop, it would be fairly easy. If it's a slim desktop or other non-standard formfactor, you'd have to take a much closer look at compatibility. If you throw me the model number I can let you know if it'll work. Also, you may want to look into the GTX 460 if you haven't already purchased the GTS 450, the 768mb version isn't much more expensive but is a good deal faster .

    Examples of the GTX 460: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127519 (new), or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130600 (recertified/refurbished).

    Perfect that's the info I needed.

    OK, from what I just researched for you, the best card you're going to be able to put in there is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121397 . This is due to the size of the case requiring a low-profile video card, and the power supply's wattage in your system. I was able to confirm it will work on both aspects by looking around and finding this post: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showpos...12&postcount=6

    It has pictures as well as a knowledgeable owner talking about his experiences upgrading your system's model .

    With this card, you're going to be looking at roughly Medium settings, but on the high-quality renderer. It's listed at $70 minus a $15 rebate on newegg at this time.

    If you have any further questions feel free, of course, and I'll keep an eye on this thread.

    I have the exact same system and I looked up this GT 430 on Tiger Direct and it says that it requires a 300 watt PS? If it does I can't see how it would operate on any level off of our 220w ones.
