If there is no much difference between eMachines ET133140e and your eMachines EL1321-02c then it might be having a 220 watt psu. If it so then you will have to upgrade the psu as well while updating the video card. You can go through the below card and check out the cards and the psu that has been mentioned for eMachines ET133140e if it is similar to eMachines EL1321-02c.

I have tried finding out detail regarding the specification of eMachines EL1321-02c but have not got any luck. Anyways I wanted to add that if it can handle 1 gb video card then you have below better choices:
  1. MSI R5450-MD1GD3H/LP Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  2. MSI N210-MD1G/D3 GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  3. ZOTAC ZT-20313-10L GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  4. EVGA 01G-P3-1313-KR GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Re: eMachines EL1321-02c graphics card upgrade

If you are planning to upgrade to 1 gb video card then I will like to inform you that you will have to get 450 watt psu for the same. In that case Corsair CMPSU-450VX 450-Watt will be the best choice. It is Compatible with the ATX12V v2.2 standard and is capable of providing maximum power stability for 1 gb and higher graphics card as well. It delivers reliable output for high-end computers as well. You can get it from new egg but you will have to check out for its availability.
