I have a emachines ET1331G-03W computer. Can i upgrade the video card? If so which one to get?

Hey i have a eMachines ET1331G-03W desktop computer. My laptop crashed so i needed a new computer for school so i looked for one i needed but because im a gamer i also wanted one i could upgrade, which i don’t know if i can upgrade parts of it, generally i don’t know much of the inner workings of computers. So my question is, I want to upgrade my graphics card on my computer for higher frame rates on games and not to have to play them on the lowest settings. Which graphics card would be compatable with my computer? and if one is, Which one should i buy to play games on medium to high settings using anti-aliasing, shadders, and over all quaility and frame rates? and will i need to upgrade my power supply? curretnly at 300watts

    To play video games, you absolutely have to buy a video card. go with a GTX 200 series if you can. I think there is one PCI-express 16 on this motherboard. It is essential that you have a PCI-express 16 expansion slot.
