You are using openSUSE, right? Open up the application launcher, go to Applications->System->Administrator Settings (it should be at or near the bottom). Enter your root password. Click the "Hardware" entry on the left, and then click "Graphics Card and Monitor" on the right. It should be listed under "Card" in the "Monitor" section.

You have either a S3 Graphics Chrome9 HC Graphics core or S3 Graphics Unichrome Pro Graphics core for your Motherboard graphics

You probably will not get great linux support for the Unichrome Pro, no 3D, vesa only.
Not sure about the Chrome9

If you add a NVidia card then you can connect your monitor to that, and then you will be able to use the capabilities of that card ( including 3D )

It will not affect the S3 Graphics in any way.
