This sounds like your computer may be several years old and the hardware a little outdated. It will depend on the game since today's latest games require not only 3d-acceleration but super fast acceleration as given by "NVIDIA" or "ATI"'s latest graphic cards.
If you are running a relatively simple game, you need to see if your computer uses which type of graphic card connector.
In the old days it was PCI, then came AGP and later PCI Express.
What the above will tell you is which 3d graphic card type to buy. You can get a graphic card at newegg.com or lots of other places varying in speed and capacity.
Hi, graphics cards do heat up and newer cards generate even more heat. No need to replace it if it is working fine for you. Just clean it up occasionally by removing the accumulated dust on the heat sink and the fan. Compressed air works well.
This small procedure will extend the life of your graphics card.
