The details you have provided supply the info you need.

SLI means it can take two Nvidia PCI-E graphics cards. Like these here click here

The rest depends on your budget.

but you don't have to put 2 cards in it.

If you're installing just one card, any PCI-express card will be OK. Which you go for will depend on budget and what you want to do with the pc.

If you're installing 2 cards in SLI they have to be Nvidia.

Devil Fish, bremner, keef66,

Thanks very much for the info. I don't play a lot of Games. My grandkids do but I don't allow them to bring any of those Voom things because my present computer won't take it & may crash my computer too.

It would be a good idea to go for one good one, Card. May be some time in the future another can be added.
