    I am not sure if this is the right place to put this but here it is. I just need to know if this is a good graphics card to get for gaming. Thanks!

    Probably not, its a decent card but its pretty old, back from 2007. If you're buying a graphics card you should be buying a new model, used graphics cards are generally a bad investment.

    What kind of games are you looking to play? My suggestion if you're going to be gaming is to get no less than a Geforce GTX 550 Ti or a Radeon HD 6770, and considerably better depending if want to play the latest games at the highest settings.

    That is about 4 generations old technology. Is it a good card for games? That depends on if you want to run old games, then it would be fine. If you want to run modern games, then you would need to go with something like a nvidia 560 or amd 6850/6870 type card.
