I was also looking at this:

Gigabyte GeForce GT 430 730MHZ 1GB 1.8GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E DVI VGA HDMI Video Card

$50 with $15 MIR - so $35 after rebate. 128bit bus.
A 430 would be faster, so with that price difference I would go for it.

Possibly true. Out of curiosity before you get a new graphics card you should take a look at CPU and ram usage when using the game or flash item that is causing the problem to see if one of them may be maxed out. Given that you said its an older quad core I would lean toward it being either a graphics problem, or the ram is maxed out. Also make sure the drivers are all up to date.
