I have given up hope on getting a new graphics card in hopes getting one that can run openGL 3.3 or better.
i do not want a new machine. I'm hoping that if i get a new motherboard it'll have some inter graded graphics that would have open gl 3.3 or better to run. It's for gaming. So is there a mobo i can put in this machine that would be compatible, just want open GL and it to be for windows 7. Oh wise internet wizards, is there hope?

I got some current upgrades for my machine, if they are not compatible I can replace them, just letting you all know so mabye it can help:

got a new power suply, works perfectly

According to your images, that desktop has no dedicated graphic card.
Most of your images are blurred, so the label on the power supply couldn't be read.

The eMachines ET1331G desktop is a Windows XP/Windows Vista-era model.
It's too old and too slow to be used for quality gaming.
You would be better off spending $300 - $500 U.S. for a newer and faster refurbished desktop.

I'm very familiar with the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE integrated graphic device

because it was a very common one in consumer-level Windows XP/Windows Vista desktops.

You're fighting a losing battle with trying to make that "dinosaur" a gaming desktop.

The other card? I Pulled it out and sent it back. it was not working with my mach9ine because it's not compatible with my machine due to some programming error. That is the second graphics card i tried on my machine that did not work. I am running on integrated graphics right now.
