Are you talking about xpress 200?If you are there really isnt any drivers thatll let you better your performance.A new pci-e card,almost any,will help you

OK,did some research,you have the amberine m mother board.itll work fine for your pci-e card,tho youll need to upgrade your power.I couldnt find the specs on your PSU(power supply) tho I believe its a 300 watter,not good enough for a good(7900gs or 1900gt) graphics card.Youll have to upgrade your psu as well,or go with a lower pci-e card.Not sure if your psu could handle even say a 1600gt or a 7600gt Tho those last 2 gpu's will be ALOT better than the 200 integrated you currently have

From what I remember about the stuff in your computer,you have maybe two regular pci cards,1 hard drive maybe one extra systen fan,and your cpu.Sorry bout not getting back to you had to leave my house.Ill go check it myself.OK,heres the news.With a 7900gs youll need at least 420 watts from a good power supply,maybe forty watts less from a lesser graphics card.But believe meI had the same set-up mother board as well as radeon xpress 200 integrated graphics as you.I added a good 420 watt psu and added a huge graphics card(very high wattage)Tho you do have a few more things on your computer than me,I think a 420 to 450 watt psu should be your first step,thwen go with at least a 1600 ati or a 7600 nvidia card,may be a lil more than you want to spend but belive me when I say everything visual will get LOTS better John

If you;re canadia go to or

there were 7600 GTs under $200 CDN, the last time I checked. Great for the $$ in Canada.
