Tell us some more about your computer and we can work out if it can be upgraded with a separate card (not all computers will let you do this). What brand and model do you have?

Mainboard: Dell OptiPlex GX100
Video Card: Intel® 82810-DC100 Graphics Controller
I'm thinking I probably need a new system as this one seems to be pretty old and out of date I was really hoping to avoid that for the time being if at all possible. I don't really play any complicated games, but it seems anything in 3D I cannot play... Eventually I would like to buy a newer system, just not at the moment, so if there is anything I can do to this current one, that would be great.
The update I was referring to earlier can be found here...
It was the only thing on the Intel site that I was able to find on the product I have and to be quite honest with you I really don't know if this is an update I'm suposed to install?
Thank you so much for your time and patience. It is greatly appreciated.

I have some bad news ...
You can upgrade your current gpu , but you wont be able to get anything to great as your motherboard only has pci ports .... and not pci express or apg ...... , with all that being said , you can still play basic games ....... but you wont find games like lost planet , or quake wars working your system , if you want to game greatly i suggest a new motherboard , new ram , and a new psu , and of course a new psu to power the new gpu , so basically a new computer lol ......
