G33/G31 sounds like onboard graphics, which would use system RAM for memory. 64 MB sounds small; it's not enough to support Aero Glass effects in Windows 7.

You may be able to increase the RAM allocated to graphics in your BIOS settings. As you have supplied no information about your system, this is speculation.

Get the graphics card anyway, if you can.
