    what card do you currently have installed ?

    if you done know - run www.belarc.com
    that should tell you the graphics card
    also what slots you have available in the machine

    I think that is a also known as a NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT card - not sure
    c£40
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/graphics_cards_buy_now_uk.html

    so for max price of £70 - I'm not sure how much improvement you may get

    what sort of games are you hoping to run
    - perhaps a gamer will reply who knows the range
