The terminal commands provided the following output:

supusrs@CM6850 ~ $ lspci | grep -i --color 'vga\|3d\|2d'
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
supusrs@CM6850 ~ $

Thanks for the helpful and responsive answer.

I agree that a cheap NVIDIA card is the way to go if you want to be able to run something like Ubuntu which has issues with your built-in card.
However, I googled and don't see any evidence of Linux dropping support for Sandybridge "Intel® HD Graphics 2000" yet and even saw one post on an NVIDIA forum stating that Kernel 4.9 was running fine with the chipset.
