    For a worthy upgrade you'd have to start at the GTX 770 or R9 280X. These are great for 1080p gaming.

    As far as I can see it's using weak integrated graphics, so that's why it's laggy. Your PSU is only 300W so that means you'll only be able to put a cheap dedicated card in there which may be not much...

    Yeah, the GTX 770 (Heavily overclocked GTX 680 rebadge) would be a very good choice for 1080p. As to Vram amount, 2GB is fine, but if your playing a heavily modded Skyrim for example, it can help ....
