The only solution u have is to upgrade v-card but with 250w psu u have few choices.

"I urchased a Radeon hd 4350 1 gig of ddr2 memory"

There's your problem. The HD 4350 is NOT a gaming card, it's a general purpose/home theater card. Try using the lowest game setting, your card isn't capable of "ultra".

The only other option is to buy a decent video card, but as kuwese pointed out, your power supply will be the limiting factor when it comes to upgrading.

yea the HD 4350 stinks for gaming.i would suggest a new vid card.considering the psu u have is low powered i would suggest at least an HD4650/HD4670

what would you think of XFX - ATI RADEON HD 4650 1GB DDR2 PCI Express Graphics Card or the PNY - GeForce 210 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Cards. i can take the other one back and exchange it for one of these without a problem i just want the best possible in-game graphics that i can afford..

the gt210 would not be better than wut u have now(hd 4350). And the xfx hd4650ddr2 u mentioned is slightly better stay away from ddr2 memory type they have low memory speeds and cant take advantage of the 1gb of memory size available so to be more specific go for the hd4650ddr3 or hd4670ddr3

Here are the memory types listed from best to worse:

GDDR5 > GDDR3/DDR3 > GDDR2/DDR2 > DDR

If you didn't read the article I linked to at the bottom of response #2, at least have a look at this chart:
