your motherboard has a PCI express x16 slot, which is where you stick the graphics card. This is the newest slot standard, so any new graphics card will fit in this slot.

you need to make sure, though, that your Power Supply Unit (psu) will support the new card. The 9400 is not very power hungry, so your PSU should be fine, but you want to double check that sort of thing just to make sure.

btw, is this for gaming? if you want a little muscle for gaming, consider a slightly more significant upgrade: both the 8400 and 9400 models were low-end, compared to cards like the 8800 and 9800. There is also a newer series from nvidia, 2xx (like 260, 280, 295, etc). If you're not locked into NVIDIA, you have even more options in ATI cards as well.

Post PSU specs and a price range, and people here can help you pick a good hardware replacement.

The 8400, 9400 & 9500 are all weak cards. Get yourself a Radeon HD4670 & pay attention to the memory. Get one with GDDR3 & watch the speed...some run the memory at 1600MHz, some at 1748MHz, some at 1800MHz & others at 2000MHz. Generally, 1GB cards are slower than 512MB cards. And the HD4670 *should* work with your power supply.
