Default Want to play BioShock - Need Graphics Card recommendations

I have an HP m8120n Media Center PC - Not built for gaming.

Intel Quad Core 2.4 Ghz processor,
2 320 GB Hard Drives
NVIDIA GeForce 7350 LE
more specs if you care to look up this computer rig.

I'd like to play BioShock without the lag, the jumping screen, the low quality, low textures, low actor detail, low everything.

Is there a way, for under $100 please, to upgrade this compydore to something that can handle newer games (playing Crysis is NOT a goal)

Trusting in the internet and it's frequenters to help me out with this one.

Much Obliged,
ManyMasks

Forgot to mention... it's running Vista...

Poor Vista. It must suck to be hated so much.

Vista has actually been fixed up pretty well.
