Will a Graphics Card Increase my FPS? (I have a bad CPU that's soldered)

Hey guys! I'm new here, and signed up just to ask this question.
I have a really bad computer.
(HP Pavilion P2-1334)


SPECS:
CPU: AMD Fusion E1-1200 (Zacate) Dual Core Processor (Soldered down on the motherboard)
Memory: 4 GB DDR3-1600

My CPU has a maximum of 1.4 GHz in the task manager.

Usage:
It's most of the time on 99% CPU Usage, even when I'm not really doing anything.
My RAM is almost all the time at 60% even when gaming.

Gaming Performance:
On lowest settings I get about 30 at the max FPS in Minecraft. Average of 23 FPS.

Plans:
I might buy this graphics card:
Inno3D nVidia GeForce 8400GS 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express x 16 Video graphics Card

Question:
Do you know how much FPS I might get on Minecraft if I buy a graphics card?
Thanks for reading! I hope I get some answers.

(I don't think I can upgrade my CPU because it says on my specs that it's soldered onto my motherboard.)

    Upgrades are no possible to gpu, there is NO 16X SLOT.
  2. Oh yeah... I just looked it up, thanks!
    Is there anything I can do to upgrade my computer to make it faster?
    I'm willing to spend some money.
  3. You can upgrade the hard drive to an SSD but that won't help for game framerate. How much are you willing to spend? You might be able to build a completely new system
  4. seriously any $150 machine will give you better performance than that.. just look at ebay bundle deals
