Answers :

I appreciate your taking the time to list the motherboard specifications. I also downloaded the Motherboard Manual from Intel.com, for the Intel D101GGC motherboard. (PDF version)

Now we know this,

1.You have a PCI Express x16 graphics expansion slot, for a graphics card.
It is the PCI Express 1.1 version technology that is used.

2.The motherboard chipset, (Northbridge/Southbridge chipset) is the ATI Radeon Xpress 200.

What I don't know is what your intentions are graphics wise. What you expect from your computer graphics.

I would recommend a VisionTek Radeon HD 3650 OC
[1GB of GDDR2 graphics ram. 128bit memory interface, with 120 Stream Processors]
(Not advertising for any particular computer parts website, but Tigerdirect and Newegg has this graphics card for around $50 U.S.)

The VisionTel Radeon HD 3650 is an ATI product just like your motherboard chipset.
(AMD owns ATI now through a buyout. It is now AMD ATI)
Using a graphics card based on the same technology as the motherboard chipset, is a recommended option. It IS NOT a necessary thing, but they 'Play Well With Each Other'.

The one thing of concern here is your power supply.
If I were to take an educated guess, (Based upon over 20 years of experience in this area, {Computers), I would guess that you have a 250 to 300 Watt power supply. (And a 12 volt rail with the capability of 18 Amps)

The Radeon HD3650 has a power supply requirement of 300 Watt, or greater power supply.
You'll be okay though.

Why?
Because this power supply requirement is based on a test computer system. The test computer uses computer components that require a Lot more power, than your installed components. This way the graphics card manufacturer is covered.

Do know that as time passes by, components inside a personal computer power supply, break down. Especially, if inside the computer isn't kept clean on a regular basis. You may want to look into a decent, reliable, 400 Watt power supply in the near future.

Sorry this solution is so long in length, but it couldn't be answered in a few short sentences.
Good news, you can upgrade the graphics card with almost any current PCIe (PCI Express) video card. Once you install a new graphics card in your system, the ATI Radeon x200 will be disabled automatically, as per the manual.

The one caveat is that the board is not PCIe 2.0 compliant, so any video card that requires PCIe 2.0 compliance will not work. This is not an issue as almost all modern graphics cards work on PCIe 1.0. However, make sure to check the requirements o fthe card before you buy it.

As for the most suitable graphics card for you, its hard to say without knowing what tasks you wish to use this computer for and what is your budget. If you are only using it for office tasks, then the onboard graphics processor is more than enough for your use.

I should mention, that the motherboard processor support constrains you to the P4 series of CPUs. This is fine for moderate tasks, but if your gola is to play a game like Crysis, then even the most powerful, multiGPU graphics card will only make the game playable. You will probably never be able to max out your frames per second.

That said, the board supports up to a 3.4ghz CPU, which is fast enough to play almost every modern game if you upgrade to a powerful graphics card.

If you wish to do 3D graphics design, I would not recomend upgrading the video card for this purpose. Video rendering and processing stil does rely on the CPU. However, if you look into nvidia's CUDA framekwork, it is possible to offload rendering to the GPU. This is probably not worth the effort unless you are relaly short on cash.

Bottom line is, yes you can upgrade no problem. As for the best video card, I do need to know he reason you wish to upgrade the video card.
