You will need a low profile or slim card to fit in that case.

No you cannot, for three reasons.

A: the case is to small, you would need a slimline video card to fit inside that case.

B: the power supply would not be able to handle it-that system comes with a 220 watt PSU, which is very weak, and since its not a normal size PSU, so finding a power supply that can handle that card that would also fit that case is next to impossible.

C: the motherboard does not have the appropriate slot for it-the 9600 uses the PCI express x16 interface-that motherboard only has PCI express x1. You would need a video card that is low profile ready, fitted for low profile factor, and upgrade your PSU.

This is probably the best video card you can get for it, and this power supply should work for your system-and you would have to upgrade the PSU to get pretty much any aftermarket card to work in it.

I have the same computer as "javierg." Are there any cards which would allow me to play "The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings?" The minimum graphics hardware for this game is "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 512 MB or ATi Radeon HD 3850 512 MB" and the recommended is "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 1 GB or ATi Radeon HD 4850 1 GB."

Edit. Would the "HIS H645H2GD1 Radeon HD 6450 2GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express x1 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card" you have up there work?
