You do not have an AGP or a PCIe slot in that computer so you will have to buy a PCI card, it sux but is your only option for that computer. You cant really find expensive cards for it, just find the biggest thing you can.

Is a PCI card an attachment on the outside of the CPU ?

A PCI card does go inside the computer box. :)

I'm not sure how you get anything inside the CPU.:confused: It's pretty small. You'd need tweezers or something.
