    First of all you need to list your exact specs. It is hard for anyone to recommend an upgrade unless they know what you have now ie agp or pci-e, what power supply is installed; will it be enough to power a new video card, etc.

    Is this a pre-built system or is it a custom build?

    Also it looks like for most of the items in the graphics, you are only about mid-way above the minimum. Will this get you the performance you would like to see. For example, might check with the manufacturer if you would get a significant increase by adding another 256-512 megs of memory.
