I'm looking to upgrade my computer with a compatible graphic's card, Is there any compatible GFX cards in stock that I can purchase for my computer from a best buy retailer?

I couldn't find much information about that particular model online. From what I could find, that computer looks like it's a little older. Do you remember when you originally purchased it? Also, some quick specs about the computer might help, too (processor, RAM, current OS).
It's possible that getting a video card might not help what you are trying to achieve. What are you planning on doing with the video card upgrade?

Well, my current video card is pre-used in another PC and doesn't work efficiently for games, it freezes it often. My current video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE. I actually was handed this down from a distant friend. Heres my Specs.
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+
Also, does Best Buy have my current GFX Card in stock? I just wanted to know if I can possibly upgrade to a newer one if need be if it is not in Stock.

The GeForce 7300 GS is no longer in production, so I'd recommend this card:
Even though it's considered "low-end" card by today's standards, it would be a considerable upgrade to your 7300 GS. I would, however, recommend against doing any modern PC gaming with your current PC setup (Battlefield 3, RIFT, DOTA 2, Skyrim, ME3, etc.). What games are you planning on playing?
To put it bluntly, 1.5 GB of RAM and a single core processor barely meets the minimum requirements of a lot of games produced in the past couple years, if at all.

Well, It's games like Rome Total War, Empire Total War, I can run most on low and it will preform to my standards, if this card is an upgrade, then i'm sure it will work since this play's these other games fairly well on mine already.

Awesome! Yea, those games should run fine with this card then if you were able to run them on the 7300 GS. Game on!

Also, would this be something where I can just put it in by myself, or have to have someone do it by myself?
**I put in a Wireless Connection device myself, would it be something like that where I install it that way?
