  1. Well the Radeon 3200 is very weak for today and for when it came out. I believe that it is also an IGP not sure but you're going to need a better GPU for gaming.
  2. thing im worried about is what can my system handle? Im looking at a few newer graphic cards just thing is, if my system cant handle them i'd be buying a whole new system and i dont want to do that, my pc is good for now. i dont lag at games, just need a newer graphic card . and how can i tell if i have a pci express. i have a pci slot but not sure about the pci express? been reading it needs to be compatible with the motherboard too. soo much into this.
  3. Get the CPUID
    It will tell everything about your system !
  4. Wow, that's a long post, really, you don't need to post like that, you can use CPU-Z:

    Install that and tell us ALL of your components there... :)
