I hate giving bad news...

While the E310 has two PCI slots and a single PCI Express x1 slot,
it lacks a dedicated x16 PCI Express slot for graphics cards.
The integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics of the 915G chipset are your only option

Now with that being said I found a thread with the following link that states these cards
will work in your E310. No guarantees, just hope it gets you headed in the right direction.

All the cards on that page support those features.
One thing I want to mention. The specs on your PC says
it has a 230W power supply. The recommended power for
those cards is 250W so you'll probably want to upgrade your
PSU if you want to get the most out of your new card.

The output is usually/always stated in the PS specs/description, e.g. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Ca...=Power-Supplies

The listed watt figure (e.g., 500-watt) is the maximum output figure for the PS. This is required to be listed on the PS itself and is (probably) also listed on any container which the PS may come in.
