The dc7700 CMT has a PCI-e x16 slot for graphics card upgrades. You can use any PCI-e x16 graphics card that will meet your needs as long as you don't exceed the power available in the dc7700.
Hope this helps.

I have a dc7700 also. I upgraded my Power supply to 550Watt and installed an XFX Geforce 9600gt 512mb GDDR3. So yes it's possible. Cheers!

You might want to consider an Nvidia 9500GT Pcie. I upgraded to a "MSI" version of the card and it works w/ the existing 385w PSU w/o any need for external power connector to the vido card itself. Meaning: if only uses power through the motherboard > no need to upgrade the PSU. It has DVI, S-video and HDMI. You can find them new on ebay in the $50 range or about 1/2 that for a used card. Furthermore you can also find them new @ newegg, amazon or even through EVGA new for around $75 w/ full warranty.
The 9500GT will play Blu-Ray no problems though; you'll need additional software. I personally prefer Cybervision V8.0 or newer. I've tried it playing Crysis and you'll have to back down the "eye-candy" to get decent frame rates (depending on the resolution of you're monitor) but, I can play COD4 w/ everything set to "high" w/ 4x AA.
If you're willing to upgrade the PSU to 550w or better and you could put in an Nvidia GTX460 SC 1Gb. With that card (best bang for the buck @ around $200) you can play any game on the market w/ good frame rates.
Hope these suggestions help, Davis
