    Looked up that model.
    So you can upgrade to a discrete/dedicated graphics card.
    What resolution you plan on playing at will decide what cards will be suitable. What resolution are you using? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution

    Need more info

    Besides the resolution of your monitor, it would be helpful to know what games your play and what is the make and model of your power supply? The power supply will put an upper limit on what you can get.

    Upgradevideocards.com has a lot of helpful information about upgrading video cards. You might want look at that site.

    The "criteria" tab has a lot of good info about determining system limits and what personal choices are important. The non-gaming page has recommended video cards up to $100 which towards the upper end provide some game capability. Note that these are just the same as gaming cards - its just at the lower end they are not really powerful enough to do much gaming.
