I got this computer from an uncle recently. I was wondering if there is any chance to upgrade this setup for gaming..

Lenovo ThinkCentre
Dual Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60 GHz
Mainboard Lenovo
RAM 2GB DDR2 400Mhz
Graphics Intel G41 Express Chipset

I know this setup is very old, but unless I can upgrade it to play CS:GO with decent fps (70 mínimum at low settings) I will have to throw it away because I already have a computer.

Thanks!

Well yes with some used parts. CPU E8400/E8500/E8600 depending on price and EO Stepping for possible overclock if the mainboard allows,2GB more RAM and for GPU 9800GT or better but the upgrade depends on total cost.

Well woops, sorry if I said laptop :-P
It would just be too hard to run CS:GO at that fps on this.
If you go for a low cost upgrade, you will only be able to upgrade ram..
I wouldn't suggest you to upgrade this

Thanks for the suggestion. I looked for prices and I dont feel spending $300 on this computer.
