You are not exactly running a gaming grade system. That CPU is the kind you would use in an office PC, and the GPU is the lowest you can go and hope to do any gaming.

I doubt it, they are both very under-powered parts. Your system is just weak. You cannot run a gaming benchmark on that system and expect to get a high score.

I would recommend a new CPU and GPU. What is your motherboard and what can you afford to spend on upgrades?

I am honestly not sure what you could do in that price range... You could put an i5-2500k in that motherboard, but those are getting harder to find as they are a couple of generations old now..

Edit: Found a 2500k, but it is a little over your budget. http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-2500K-Quad-Core-Processo...

That would be a pretty good upgrade if you can find a good enough mobo in your price range along with the CPU.
