From what I was able to search you have the D865GVHZ Hazelton Motherboard. Unfortunately it does not even have a AGP slot for a Video card let alone a PCIex16 slot. The motherboard is too old. According to the specs here your graphics chipset it supposed to support OpenGL. Download the latest driver here depending on your OS which should be XP as the graphics chips does not support Windows 7.

Personally, if you can afford it, I would get a new computer. If that is not possible you can get a PCI video card but I don't think you will notice much difference in speed. I believe your computer is just too old.

Your motherboard only has PCI slots, so you will not be able to use a PCIe card. The best you can acheve is to use the PCI graphics card I linked to.

 

Have you tried updating your driver?

you can install a PCI video card, such as this  however, make sure you power supply can handle it (you need a 400 watt or greater power supply, I would recomend somewhere in the 500-550 watt range)
