The Lenovo you linked is bad for two reasons:
1) Graphics Card. As you already know, it's a low-end card. In terms of performance it's not that much better than your old card.
2) High stats on the wrong parts. What good does a 2000GB hard drive for gaming? How do you ever get to use the 12GB ram?
That is the general problem with pre-builds: the combination of parts is almost always less than optimal.
Let's try to get something better...

This leaves some room for changes and other stuff. E.g. this price includes a total of $55 mail-in-rebate, which might not be available when you purchase your parts.
