Question about Gateway GT5012 PC Desktop
You need to purchase a PCI-Express video card.
Your current graphics are built into the motherboard, so you don't need to remove anything, just install the card in the PCI-E 16x slot.
Bear in mind, that you should not try to purchase a power-hungry card, as your PC's power supply is only rated at 300W. Also you will need to make sure that - if the card needs a special power connection plugged directly into it - there exists a lead coming out of your power supply with suitable connector.
Summing up, you'll need to open your case to look for the extra power lead for graphics card, and shop for a card that either accepts the power connector you have, or does not need additional power.
