Without doubt you need a dedicated graphics card, your budget will determine which card but for decent middle of the road something like a GTX460.

This could result in you having to upgrade your PSU also, what PSU do you have?

Take the side off your case and have a look at it, it should have a model number somewhere.

That is not enough information.

"D2811-A1" is too generic. A Google search comes up with nothing related to a power supply.

You need to provide the Brand Name, Model, the amount of amps on the +12v rail and total power. Here's an example:



Brand Name: Seasonic
Model: SS-400FB
Amps on +12v rail: 22A
Total Power: 400w

this is absolutely useless information. please read the above posts and try again. There is a post showing CLEARLY what information we need from the PSU, and you are not giving this to us, so we cant help.

there are several factors that would affect your PC performance
i suggest go get a decent Video Card but buying video card also get another factor specially on PSU
like usually most VGA nowadays needs PCIE the 6-pin thingy
and i suggest if you can get your OS to 64-bit and upgrade ram to 8GB
