not. this machine has no graphic (agp or pci express) slot (check your specs. on dells web-site to confirm) to up-grade the graphic card. It may have a free pci slot available, but I don't recommend those cards. What do we need the graphic card up-grade for??

if he goes through with buying the graphic card, he will probably have to up-grade his power supply too.
