SORRY...your system specs are so low and there really isn't a upgrade path for your system...
if you tried putting in a PCI video card to replace the onboard graphics you would also have to upgrade the power supply at the same time...
no matter what you do it will be like putting lipstick on a pig...
save the money and apply it to a new system...if you want to do a lot of gaming ...get one with a good video card

Better still (and makes much more sense than a PC) is buy a game console. They are purpose built for the job. A PC may be more versatile than a console but it's still not ideally suited to frequent running of games software. Of course, many prefer the PC because it means they can download games, often illegally at no cost (not for one minute suggesting you are one of those), but if you want the best gaming experience(and it sounds as though you do) the console can't be beaten.
