Add or remove graphic cards

I currently have a very bad graphic card of Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.0)
.
Can you tell me i can add another card with large graphic memory or i can remove old one and add new one?

You can always add a new graphics card.

As long as it`s not a laptop.

If you could tell us the exact motherboard model, that would really help or the exact make and model of the PC.

Filling in your system specs would help here instead of just trying to guess your hardware.

The specified graphics card that you said is a Intel GMA 3100 (Same as mine). We will need your system specs, budget, and your Power Supply info so we can give you the best suggestion

MS-7529-050 MSI Intel G31M3-L, 8CH Audio, LAN, VGA Intel GMA 3100 - 1333 FSB - 16X PCI-e, 2xPCI, 1xPCI-e 1x,...

You can add a new pci-express graphics card.

We still need to know what the power supply wattage is, there should be a sticker on it telling you the maximum wattage.

A card like this draws 29 watts and says it needs a power supply of at least 300 watts.
