According to the review at Hardware Central it has a ,

" PCI Express x16 slot for a half-height discrete graphics card. "

http://www.hardwarecentral.com/hardwarecen...cle.php/3798896

So a search for that or a PCI-E low profile video card should find some choices .

This will give you an idea of what's available,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....amp;Order=PRICE

For gaming I suggest a 256MB 128 bit card at the least .

There are a bunch of 64 bit cards listed, if you plan on gaming I would slip them.
OCZ StealthXstream 700W,Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R , E8500, Arctic Freezer Pro 7, 3GB G.Skill PC8500,Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 OC [1GB ], Seagate 250GB SATA II X2 in RAID 0, Samsung SATA DVD burner.
