Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset

I have this current graphics card and Was thinking of upgrading as i play a lot of games and like the gameplay to be as smooth as possible but at the same time i don't have money to splash out on expensive graphics cards.

Is this a good graphics card for gaming or should I Save for a newer one?

You really need to save for a PCI-E graphic card, onboard graphic cards these days will not do the job intended for gaming ATI and nVidia are most common graphic cards brought these days on the market.
Here is a list of graphic cards available in today's market: Video Cards | Techbuy Australia

Thats not a gfx card its an integrated display controller, or an integrated graphics processor. I decline to call it an IGP because it couldnt process real life, and real life has sucky graphics.

You probably have a PCIE slot if this is a desktop.

If you want a budget card that can play almost any current games, then go for something like a NVIDIA 9 Series or a ATI Radeon HD 4xxx series. This package should run you about $120 with shipping.

Here are some links:

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 (1GB/256Bit) -- Click Here
MSI 9800 GT (1GB/256Bit) -- Click Here

As much as I love gigabyte, might I suggest Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100245HDMI Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

If your resolution is below 1920x1024, this will do you justice, and it has a rebate too. Not many games are going to run you above 512mb vram usage, unless your screen is the size of a small sedan.

Sorry i didn't mention this before I still have another computer which has an Nvidia GeForce MX440 Graphics card, Is that better that the G41 or not? I'm not too good with these cards.

It's pretty old. It may outperform the G41, but probably not.
