Upgrade my graphics on GT 610

I just bought a Geforce GT 610 DDR3 2GB graphics card and am sort of underwhelmed. Not really sure what I expected with a Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of RAM though.

Would an upgrade to a new processor improve my graphics? Thinking about picking up a CPU/Mobo combo from microcenter for a AMD FX 6300. Would this help?

That GPU is terrible as well a new CPU is in order.

You need a much better card, that card even for htpc ain't that good.
At least a 650 gtx(from that series)...
It's not the cpu, although it's old, it's the card.
If you can pick a new cpu+mobo+gpu, get it.
But if you have only a budget for cpu and mobo drop it, and just get a better card...

Wow, no, the 610 is HORRIBLE. If you can return it, do so.

Yea I would look at 650ti's and 7770's. I would also use pcpartpicker to look over prices so you can compare and contrast.
