This is what I have:

http://s723.photobucket.com/user/TDH18/media/photo.jpg.html

I want to get something better in the future that will reduce any lag I have in gaming. What card is recommended? I don't have alot of money to put into it, so is there a graphic card that is affordable that is better than what I have? I want to play Skyrim mostly, but eventually play other games as well.
I'm not too familiar with PC gaming, so hopefully I could get some help. :/

Also, how do I know if my processor is quad or dual core? Thanks!

a gtx650ti is a good card for under 150

What is your current psu? any 400w+ psu should be enough for this gpu
I would have said an amd card but most are sold out or prices are inflated because of the miners...

the pic you posted lists the number of cores 'number of cores: 4' so you have a quad core

Thanks! But how do I figure out PSU? Also, how well will mods run on what I have?

I looked in the "Command" thing, and didn't see anything with PSU. :/

Sorry, I feel stupid asking, but what do you mean by model?

What kind or PC is it. Like a Dell insperion i660s or an Acer v3-571g-9964 etc etc.

You can probably get that in control panel/system

Ah, yes. It is a desktop, and it is a HP Pavilion 500-046 Desktop PC if that's what you need to know.
