Default Gaming graphics problems

I thought it was my GPU that was the problem, but now I just don't know. Below are pictures from some of my games (Grand Theft Auto: San Andres, ARMA 2 free, Combat Arms) and my specs. If anyone can tell me anything, please tell me.

I've resized some of the pics from 1024x768 to 640x480 so you guys don't have these giant pics taking up the screen


And I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. Also have 3 GB RAM. And my GPU is integrated.

It's like this for every person I see in GTA: SA

Have you tried to reinstall the graphics driver?

Yes. I actually found and installed 4 different drivers yesterday. I think one was for my CPU and the others for GPU. I can play all my games now, no problems. It's wonderful being able to play the games right.

I was thinking of getting this:

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R667D3-1GI Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

It's right in my budget, has good reviews, and it listed on a few websites as the best budget GPU. My monitor works via hdmi so that's perfect, and I have the PCIE x16 slot. As of now, I can't play games like Guild Wars 2 or Skyrim, but hopefully that'll change.

Your opinion is welcome. Actually, please give me your opinion.

The integrated GPU is weak. That 6670 will be a huge improvement for you.

Wonderful. I'm just thrilled that I can run my games now, regardless of what graphics setting.
