Default Graphics card upgrade question

Hello all,

So i am wondering if just a graphics card upgrade will speed up my computer, based upon my windows experience index:

Processor: 6.5
RAM: 5.9
Graphics: 3.9
Gaming Graphics: 3.7
HDD: 5.9

It seems like a graphics card upgrade is what i need. currently i am running a ATI Radeon X300/X550/X1050 series from about five years ago. What are the expert opinions?

Thanks

If you're using the computer for games, then upgrading your graphics card will speed them up immensely.

What are the other specs of your computer?

According to HP's specs you have a 300w power supply. Best card I could find that will run on it is an MSI GT 440 for about $80.
