In order to upgrade the graphics card you'd have to replace the one you have. Have you checked your system against the requirements for Half Life 2 and Steam? Am I reading correctly that you only have 256MB RAM? I'm assuming this is an error in reading your system details. If it's true though, you really need more RAM on your system to play Half Life 2. As you have Windows 2000, I'm assuming this is a relatively old system by computer standards. You might first look into whether or not it is financially possible to replace the system.

An 8600GT will easily play HL2. List the rest of your system specs.
