I'm pretty sure that you have onboard graphics now. There would be a pretty good difference in the performance of games.

probably since it is a store bought PC, and onboard graphics, i'd say probably 200% increase, possibly more.


his on board is a
ATI Radeon Xpress 200

And this would be simple to do right? No possible issues resulting from it?

Nope; just install the drivers (the ones from ATI's website will be most recent), and you should be good to go. Make sure you plug your monitor onto the plug on the new card after you install it, instead of the one that it's plugged into now.

believe me, you will enjoy, make sure to download the ATI drivers before you get the card, put it in (that's what she said) and install CCC and you will be amazed at the difference...
