Hi maybe you guys can help i've been shopping around for a graphics card for my pc my girlfriend wants me to get her the sims 3 but when i try to play it i cant because my graphics card does not support pixel shading 2.0 so time to upgrade... Now to the problem i have no idea how to go about buying one and need some recommendations so here is a list of my pc's specs

Dell Optiplex GX270 (SFF)
P4 2.8GHZ Processor
2 GB DDR RAM
Both AGP and PCI are supported
My Power Supply Wattage is horrible at 160W
System Clock is 400MHZ

Not at all. What is on the graphics card is GDDR2 not DDR. It doesn't have anything to do with your system memory.
