If this is a PCI-E x16 graphics card it will not work. The dc5700 only supports PCI graphics cards or in the slot that looks like a PCI-E x16 slot an HP SDVO ADD2 card.
Hope this helps.

PCIE X16 for SDVO graphics only
However, you can use a standard PCI video card...
I used a PCI Nvidia Geforce 6200 OC by BFG Tech on my HP at work.
Dual monitor too.
say thanks with HP POINTS

...The DVI ADD2 is an Advanced Digital Display 2 (ADD2) adapter card that offers a convenient, low-cost method for connecting a DVI digital display to the graphics controller of an i915G-based mainstream or high-end desktop PC with a vacant PCIE x16 slot. The adapter card is based on the Silicon Image Sil 1364 Transmission Minimized Differential Signaling (TMDS) transmitter, offering high quality visual experience with a rock solid, crystal-clear display. The adapter card plugs into the PCI Express x16 slot of a PC with an ADD2-compliant chipset, such as the Intel i915G. With the card installed, the PCs VGA connector is still available for a conventional VGA monitor so that both displays can be used simultaneously in a clone-mode or in an extended desktop configuration. The HP DVI ADD2 card is the lowest-cost solution to allow DVI connectivity on most Intel-based Business Desktop PC's.
Enhances Intel's integrated graphics solutions by providing DVII and TV connectivity (RZ585AA) and an all-digital DVI-D graphics connector (DY674A).
Adds low-cost support for DVI-D devices, such as digital flat panels and projectors
Allows a second attached display to work with or independently of a display connected to the VGA port integrated on the motherboard
VGA support through DVII allows for connecting two VGA displays to the PC (RZ585AA).
TV-Out connector for External Video support (RZ585AA). .

The best solution is to buy a Video Card with a PCIe-1x interface. They are not as powerful or cheap as the PCIe-16x cards, but they will do the trick. I bought a PCIe-1x to run my CAD and scientific visualization software, and it worked great! I can not tell you how good it will perform on games, though (I guess it will depend on the game). Here is a link for an HP PCIe-1x card:
And here is another one from HIS (the one I bought):
HIS also has a dual-DVI output card, but I have heard of people complaining about making it fit, so I am not sure. Hope this helps.

Me again, I just found this article that compares PCIe-1x and PCIe-16x cards. Enjoy!

Has anyone any suggestions on how I would get 2-4 screens on my HP 5700?, I'm only looking for one extra right now, not looking to spend too much, have the graphic card slot and one PCI slot free.
Ideally looking for CHEAP, in UK, seems most card manufacturers are trying to sell shares in the Biz, not just a Graphics card!
