Default Video Card Problem?

I have an ATI Radeon HD 4350 video card, with 1 gig of memory.

While playing some games i get weird video glitches, such as disappearing text, or little lines all over the place (demonstrated in Screenshot) is this need for a video card upgrade or is something i can fix without buying a new card?

thanks

Has this been posted at the game's website?

Other than that, it might be your screen's resolution.

In these games that it happens, do they have a resolution setting in it? try that.

i have tried every resolutionsetting in Aion, but the lower the resolution the worse the lines get, and the max is 1280 x 1024 which is how that pic was taken.
