You do have a pci expressx16 slot to put a graphics card in. There are a few problems I see though:
1. The power supply is most likely cheap. If you want to get a higher end graphics card, you'll need a new power supply.
2. Cards with dual-slot coolers or large heatsink fans, as well as cards that are very long may not fit very well in your case.
3. A celeron processor is really going to bottleneck most any modern graphics card you get. I had an older ATI X1900gt from 2006, and my Pentium 4 processor really bottlenecked it down. Once I got a core 2 duo processor, I could turn the graphic settings up higher in all of my games and I would have less lag.
If you really want to play games, you're looking at at least $300 worth of upgrades. If you're not planning on playing newer games though, you may be able to settle with the celeron processor.
I have a question for everyone, but it's on topic. According to the Intel website, the 945g chipset supports Celeron, Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Core 2 Duo processors, at 533mhz, 800mhz, and 1066mhz fsb. Does this mean all motherboards with this chipset support these processors?
