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.
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.
