Your machine is so old it's not worth upgrading. Not being funny but that motherboard was brand new in 2001 and to spend any money on the system is fruitless. You're better off replacing the entire computer if truth be told.

There's a favorite saying of mine: "Don't put good money after bad."

Even if you invested a few hundred dollars in this machine, it still would struggle to play modern games on low settings. The bottom line is that you really need whole new motherboard and processor, and so you're going to pretty much need a whole new system. If you spent $600 on a new machine you could easily run those games on medium settings without any trouble (actually you could probably run WoW on High settings).

Give us your budget, and we can price out a system for you.
