If you download and run this click here it should tell you what equip you have now.

Then it may be possible to tell you what you can up to.

thanks that was a top says that i have a ati radeon 9550 running through a agp(socket) ?

In that case, unless ATi bring out a agp version of the x1900xtx, you will not be able to install the card/s you mentioned as these are pci-e sockets.

Hope this helps.

For SLI you need 2 graphics slots PCI Express ones and 2 Nvidia cards not ATI cards. If its AGP you have you can get a better graphics card than you have if you wish but the latest ones are PCI Express. By the way I couldn't find the desktop you say you have anyway I could only find the IMedia 1507 click here is this what you have?
