To be honest I think this PC is far to old for any real graphic card upgrade.The PC has a pentium D processor which is ancient. I have been unable to find a image of your PC's motherboard so cannot be sure whether it has a PCI-E or the older AGP slot for a graphics card.

Just found this but I am not certain it is yours. Can you take the side off your PC and see if it is the same?

Register and upload photos using this. Photobucket. When you have uploaded your photos then click on one or hover your mouse and a box will open giving you 4 box choices, Email,Direct,HTML and IMG Code. Click on the direct link box and it will say copied then come here and paste the link.

I have downloaded the image and found enough info to identify the mobo.

Here is your board. Motherboard. I see you have a PCI-E slot for a graphics card (GPU),it's the long brown one in your image. This will give you a bit better choice but I really need to know what wattage your power supply (PSU)is, you will find the info on a sticker on PSU as this will have a bearing on what GPU I can suggest.
