    You can try lowering the resolution within Steam, and make sure you're running in the Rendering mode you want to be running in....

    Rendering mode being Direct 3D or Open GL?

    Try OpenGL first, if you don't get good results, then try Direct3D, but OpenGL is more commonly used.

    I'm already on OpenGL, and I lowered the Resolution to 800 x 600, so there I get at most 60 FPS, which is pretty good.
    Would buying a better Video card Improve FPS?

    Yes, yes it would.

    Just so you know, the human eye can only see around 70-75 FPS at the most, so you won't be able to tell the difference between any framerates above that.
