currently i am using a graphics called named :Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. It came with my desktop and i need better graphics for gaming and graphic design. its been a hassle and ive been able to do majority with no problems but i think as time passes more apps and programs are required for higher graphics. i want to know if i can get cheap 0-50 upgrade from this basic gcard. i have some things ive found online.

The graphics cards you have listed are only a small upgrade from the Intel HD 2000 that you currently have. You will still not be able to play a lot of games or do heavy graphics work. For you I could recommend the Radeon HD 7750. This card is the ideal card for low budget low power machines. Its can be had for $90, it barely consumes power, and it performs really well. You will be able to play most games at mid settings.
