what do you need a new graphics card for? that cpu will be holding you back for alot of graphics cards and i dont know what power supply you have. assuming you dont have any 6 pin pci power connectors and a low watt power supply i would get a amd 7750 cause it takes power from the motherboard instead of a power connector

I'd recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Feel free to ask more questions if you need. I remember how hard it was being a beginner. And to answer your question, your current setup is pretty poor, the processor is weak but that graphics card will make games playable.
