Default New graphics and video cards!

I recently bought a new computer
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630 Processor 2.8GHz
RAM: 4 Gb

And have a 27"" acer LCD widescreen, but games are still a little laggy ,
was wondering what video or graphics card i can so i can make games full screen because i currently have them on windowed mode. Just want to know what could greatly increase my fps in games.
I am living in Australia and budget is pretty much not major issue for me but would still like to know some budget but decent ones.

What computer did you buy? A new PSU will probably be needed, if this computer is a prebuilt, as most prebuilts come with PSU's that are just powerful enough the system as it ships.
