Hello and welcome to the forums
You should be able to use any PCI-E cards but your card's performance will be bottlenecked with your current CPU.So upgrade your CPU and RAM too if you are going to play games.

+1 to Maziar. A cheap graphic card might give you a boost, but don't spend more than like $40-50 on this system. Maybe a Nvidia GT 220?

+1 to Maziar as well.

Your Celeron processor is not intended for gaming use. So it will limit your overall performance. Depending on your operating system, the 2GB of RAM may limit you somewhat as well. As deadlockedworld suggested, don't spend a lot of money on the video card, as you won't get full performance from a mid to high level card.

Also, what resolution is your monitor, and what games do you intend to play? The game you wish to play may or may not be playable with a Celeron E1400.

7050 chipset eh? I'm using a nforce 610i mobo and have the same chipset.The difference is that I'm using Intel C2D E4500 @ 2.2GHz and 4gb RAM on it.As for the graphics card, mine is a gt 240 ddr5 and it running fine and smooth.If you have the same 610i mobo,you may try this card.There may be an issue of bottleneck becoz of the cpu but its the best card you may look for.

It has a 32 bit operating system, screen resolution is 1440x900. i can upgrade the ram to 3gb, and im going to do that with a 2 gb DDR2 800mhz. Is it worth it to upgrade the graphics card?... doesnt sound like it.

Adding more RAM will help but like i mentioned,your CPU will hold your GPU back.

You can look for CPUs that fit on the LGA 775 socket,which I believe you have.The best one for this may be Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 3200 MHz Yorkfield XE.

Though you should check your socket if it actually is the LGA 775 or something else

Check your motherboard's site for the CPU support(some CPUs may require a BIOS update in order to work)
