Default Need help! System not running games as well as it should!

Buy the Gateway LX6810 Refurbished Desktop Computer at

Ok so this is the computer I have. I've got quadcore, I've got 8gbs of ram, and then I have a nvidia graphics card that came with it. I'm not super tech savvy and so I don't know the difference between one 1gb video card and another.

The question I have is this:

What graphics card should I get to make this a better gaming machine. I have a feeling the graphics card is the week point, but I honestly don't know.

Any help?
