"note i already upgraded the powersupply to 550"

That statement doesn't mean much. There are good 550W PSUs & bad. Without knowing the make/model & amperage specs, it's impossible to tell if you made a wise choice or not. Hopefully you didn't buy it from BestBuy.

All systems have PCIe slots these days. Here's the differences:

There is no physical difference in the slot. The difference is the amount of data that can theorectially pass thru.

The link at the bottom of response # 1 should help you make a decent graphics card choice.
