✔ Best Answer
The biggest problem with trying to install a PCIe graphics card in one of these OEM PCs is the low wattage powersupplies they came with. Yours has only a 250W powersupply and it is probably insufficient to run your chosen graphics card.

Your next problem may be that you need to enable the PCIe option in BIOS. It may be disabled by default.

Check your power requirements first then once you have a suitable replacement powersupply look at the bios settings.

The minimum PSU requirement for that graphics card is 450W. http://xfxforce.com/en-us/products/...

You should get something around 600W for safety and costing more than $50.
