depends whay you refer to as improvement. if the current pc handles everything your wife does and plays without slowdown or crashing then no you wont see any improvement as you cant do better than something working.

if the games lag and theres noticible slowdown then yes even a cheap dedicated gpu will make an improvement.

jusy make sure the computer has a pci slot free on the motherboard.
