This is an excellent value and HP delivers a quality machine, however, in my experience, Adobe Photoshop is not compatible with a 64 bit Operating system. I regularly use the latest versions of Photoshop and I was not able to load them on any new computers until I downgraded back to a 32 bit Operating system. So, you might want to look a little further into all of your software compatibility. For this sole reason, I personally dont care for 64 bit OS.

It will not play Blu-Ray out of the box. However, a Blu-Ray player, purchased separately, will most likely run fine on this system.

Does anyone know if this computer has a second video card slot so one can install a second monitor?

I have the following card on my current computer:

Will this work on this computer? It is a Jaton VIDEO-118PCI-32DDR Graphics Card.

The video card you list is an older PCI card using Nvidia graphics with 23MB memory. This HP Computers built in video component is newer, faster technology. It would be like putting an old 4-cylinder engine into your new Farrari sports car.
If you want to upgrade this HP's video card get one like the GeForce 8800GT which has 512 MB memory and runs on newer software ad is the faster PCI Express X16 type video card. See Expansion specs above.

Maybe, but it is not a Gamer rig with an expensive video card with a lot of memory for games which depend on memory intensive video capabilities.

No, what it has is a built-in Ethernet card on the motherboard. This will allow you to connect it to your own wireless router or home network. It does not have Bluetooth built-in.

I am using this computer currently with WOW and it looks great. Does lose some frame speed when WOW is turned all the way up to ultra, but I am running it about 2 notches down from Ultra and it looks amazing. No drag in Dalaran on this pc, or in 25 man Naxxramas for that matter.
