my mom has a dell inspiron 530 q6600 with 6gigs of ram and an on board graphics card. couldnt find out what kind of motherboard but cpuid says its an intel chipset P35/G33/G31. they keep complaining that the computer is slow on pulling up webpages and displaying pictures. would this be due to the computer not having a dedicated graphics card and having the onboard graphics card or is it something else? if getting a graphics card would help, what would be some good suggestions? they mainly just surf the web, use ebay and play these small puzzle games where you find the objects in different rooms.
