My computer configuration is as followed

Processor: AMD FX 8350
Ram : 24 GB
Current Graphics Card: EVGA Ge Force 8400 GS

I have a little knowledge about graphics card as I am not a gamer. For work reason I need a mid range graphics card with a budget 100-150 USD. I would be glad to learn about if I can add a graphics card with the older one and there are so many graphics card with this price range so what should I would be looking for. I am hoping all the expert members in this forum will help me and guide me to find me a graphics card with my current PC configuration. I bought the current graphics card just a month ago without understanding I need a slightly better one than this one and I don't want to throw it away as it will be a waste of money.

An advance thanks to everyone for taking their precious time and reply me.

Here's a card that's been well reviewed and fits in your budget, and EVGA has a very good reputation.

Keeping both cards won't serve a purpose, unless you are running multiple monitors, and even then may not be desired.  You may possibly be able to return the other graphics card to the point of purchase, it may be worth a try.
