Default Why doesnt my comp have a graphics slot?

i was about to upgrade my comp with a new graphics card, but i had never checked inside so i thought i was just using built in graphics on the motherboard or something, so i open the case and there isnt a slot for a graphics card so am i missing something here? are there other types of graphics cards i can buy, im sure i heard of ones that fit into the usb slot or something? i dont have the money or the skill to start upgrading and messing about with the motherboard n the other stuff, i just wanted to insert a card and close the case so i could play swtor, a new MMO coming soon and now i cant. So my question is, is there another way to get good graphics without having to inset a card into the motherboard like are there ones you can get that fit into the usb? thanks

Sounds like you have built-in graphics on your motherboard. This doesn't mean you will see a bulging sticky-outy-in-your-face card, but the components are built onto the motherboard.

What sort of games do you play now?
Look in device manager, what do you see under graphics hardware?

We would be able to help more if we had the model number of your motherboard.
