If he has an Inspiration then he has a 300w or a 350w PSU which is shotty and onboard graphics will not play the games he has. Maybe games like Zuma, Chess, cards, etc.
I started out with a dell inspiration 580 with a i3-530 2.93GHz 6GB of ram at 1066mhz and and Intel GMA inergrated graphics. I still don't know what kind it was just Intel GMA. Before I bought a Card I could never play cool games.
It would freeze up all the time. And after I got me a GT 220 I burned it up playing Total war games along with Age of Empires. Anyway I thought I would share this to help a little.
@icoleman1 Are you looking up your model specifications at Dell's website? If not, you can put your system serial number into their website and look it up that way. As it sounds like your computer is fairly new, your power supply shouldn't be proprietary so you should be able to replace it with something better. I would recommend at least a 450W Antec. Once you have resolved your power supply issue, I would recommend a card that is in your budget range. Let us know what that is so a recommendation can be made. Oh, and check to make sure you have a PCI Express x16 slot available before you look for power supplies. If you don't have that slot, there isn't a point in replacing anything.
