Hello B25, are you wanting to update the video driver, or upgrade the video card to a better one?

It would be helpful for you to give us the manufacturer and model number for the PC and a price range that you are willing to pay. Also, what do you intend to use this new graphics card for (heavy gaming, light gaming, video editing, general purpose, etc.)

The graphics card you mention is integrated (built onto the motherboard). Almost anything added on will be an improvement. High performance/high $$ cards also take a lot of power and may require upgrading your power supply unit (PSU). There are dozens of options available ranging from a few tens of $$ to a couple hundred $$.

If your system is generic rather than a brand name model, you can provide a snapshot of your system specification:

Any budget and can you check the watts for your power supply?

Welcome to the forums!!!

Is this your PC?

The power supply would need to be replaced, most likely. Aside from this restriction, and the elimination of large, high-end GPU's due to size, you can use almost any graphics card on the market. With video editing, I think that CPU you are using is more of the limiting factor over the graphics card.
