A graphics card upgrade is a common upgrade for computers, especially on systems intended for gaming and design.
There are many different issues that might cause your computer to not properly recognize your new graphics card.

It might take some time to isolate the graphics card issue, but most fixes are easy for a home user.

Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the back.
Check the physical connections of the video card.
Ensure that the power supply connector is properly attached.
Check that the card is firmly inserted into the AGP or PCI-E slot.
If you are unsure that it is installed correctly, check the manufacturer's documentation and reinstall the card.
Download the latest graphics card driver from the manufacturer's website.
In most cases, you'll be downloading from NVIDIA or ATI.
Install the proper driver for your operating system and graphics card model.
The installation process is the same for most graphics driver installations.
Click "Next" and "I accept the license agreement," choose a location to install the driver, and continue clicking "Next" until the installation is complete.
Restart the computer when prompted and check if the problem is fixed.
Installing the wrong driver can cause problems with Windows recognizing the graphics cards.

Go to "Start" and right-click "My Computer."
Choose "Properties."
Select the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button.
Look under the "Display Adapters" section for an entry listing your graphics card.
If the entry is listed with an exclamation mark or a question mark, there is an issue with the card being detected.

Otherwise, it has been detected correctly.

Try several different versions of drivers if the card is still not recognized properly.
Check the manufacturer forums and support sections for recommended driver versions.
Some graphics cards are more stable on older versions of the card, or there may be beta drivers that will fix the issue.
Update the motherboard drivers as well. Sometimes compatibility issues between a motherboard and graphics card are fixed with new drivers.

Contact the manufacturer for a video card replacement if it is still not recognized.
Hardware issues can manifest in many ways, and it may not be possible for the card to be detected correctly with a physical problem.

Have you tried letting Windows do it for you? In the system option in the control panel, in the hardware tab, click device manager, then on display adapters right-click and select "Scan for hardware changes." Your card should certainly be recognized.

Found no display my PC. ( Mother Board ASUS M2N68AM , Ram 1 GB 667 DDR2,CPU AMD Athlon 5000 )

Do u mean there no display adapter on your motherboard? If that's the case some ASUS motherboards don't have on board video or graphic cards. You can buy an addon cards available in most computer shops, You stand a chance of getting a much better graphics card than those that come with the motherboards.

I have msi 7327 motherboard with ati radeon x 1600 graphic card. Which is the best graphic card up-gradation option available for me that shall be compatible with my existing mobo. CPU AMD 4800+ RAM 2048...

Well from what I am looking at right now, you need to pick a PCI Express card for your upgrade. You know what you are going to use this computer for. My best solution for you would be to advise you to pick out the best video card for what you are wanting to do, for gaming you might need a higher end card, but if you are just going to use this for the internet and displaying web pages I wouldn't spend that much on a video card. Matter of fact it has on board video just use that.

If you want a really good card be ready to pay for it. I looked around and they are not cheap!

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB $150.00
Radeon 4850 $175.00

There are a couple of ball park figures. But your motherboard should accept any pci express card you want to throw in it.
