Default Upgrading or buying new one?

Hello, im new here!

I've had my pc for over 3 - 4 years now, so i really want to make it better, why? i can only play few games (1999 games :) ) but trying to play modern games will not run. I never had a graphics card, neither know how to buy them .

Here is some information i got, with this program i just installed (SiSoftware Sandra).
