a newer buget card should improve the performance yes.the recommended mimimum specs printed on the games cover can be a bit deceiving.they usually are the bare minimum required just to install the game and get as far as the menu screen.if you actually want to play the game,higher specs will be usually be required.

before you spend any money on a new card though try updating the current graphics card drivers to the latest direct x9 compatable ones from click here then install direct x9 from click here

most new games will now require direct x9 and compatable drivers to be installed in order to run correctly,even though the hardware you have does not fully support it.

shutting down everything else running before playing the game may also improve the will adding some more ram.
