no way.

a cheap and better one would be the 9800 gt 70- 90 euro
or the ati 5770 for about 130- 150

don't upgrade now, wait a little bit to save more money and buy an excellent graphics card. That is what i would do.

PCI-E= PCI-Express. I saw its ok she is i think.

If you want a good card with directX11 (Nvidia) wait few month becouse the new GTX (480 and 470 = 400-500 euros)
And if you want good card now. Take the 260GTX (Nvidia) for 180 euros. I got it and its great.
My 9800gt has crashed in 15 month....

go to Start -> Run -> dxdiag. This runs a diagnostic test for you computer. This is also helpful to run if you encounter a problem with your sound or video. The first tab, System, gives you general information about your computer: your CPU, RAM, OS, and system manufacturer. Go under displace and in the device section, it gives you the name of the graphics card you have. Remember that you can only run this is if you have DirectX installed. DirectX is required to play most games so chances are that you will have it installed without you even knowing.

You could try overclocking your current video card.  The cost is nothing.. just download the software, and try to do some incremental changes to your clock speed.  

You can google the info if you want.. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=9500+GT+overclock

Here is a decent overall guide on how to overclock a video card.  http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/graphics-overclock-software,2369.html
