  1. Well...you are basically going to have to upgrade everything if you want to play games. Your CPU is too weak for modern games, and you don't have enough ram. Your motherboard can't support any CPUs that would have gaming performance, and your ram is so outdated there are no motherboards for newer platforms that support it.
  2. Yeah, so i thought..........Do you think it best to replace with a modern motherboard with new memory graphics cards ect.....?? Any recommendations?? where to start looking?? Maybe Barebones?? I would like to find something that would be good for future upgrades....

    Thank you
