Upgrading the processor and the video card will help but you will also need to upgrade the stock 250W PSU (power supply unit) to power the upgrades, is this something that you are willing to do.

- AMD Phenom II Quad-Core

NOTE: Replacing the CPU can be tricky. You will need thermal paste and if the instruction set differs from your current CPU, you will need to reinstall your operating system.
If you don't have money to buy new components, there are two alternatives:
- 1. I assume you're running Windows XP, in which case you might see some benefit if you do a clean install of Windows. I find that Windows gets "cluttered" with old apps that don't uninstall correctly over time.
NOTE: You will need the original installation disks, as well as the disks for all the applications you have installed yourself.
- 2. You can overclock your system.
NOTE: Overclocking can result in permanent damage to your CPU, motherboard and RAM.
