ATI 1200 series is integrated (on-board) graphics - far better to have PCI(e) or AGP card fitted, there are plenty to choose from depending on your budget. Personally I would go for PCI(e), I guess your motherboard, being new, would have PCI(e) slots.

Also in my link, notice the comment about laptop graphics, near the bottom - you have not said whether desktop or laptop? Laptop graphics cannot be upgraded.
