Do you not have a graphics card? If you are using integrated, the CPU will really make no difference to the settings you can play at and what framerate.

A GT240 is a weak GPU slightly lower than a 9600GT. Overclocking your CPU will make little difference since you have a GPU bottleneck.

What about this card Novatech ATI Radeon 5670 512MB GDDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Graphics Card

Is that card better than the gt240, and is it worth upgrading the psu for?

It is a 300w liteon psu

the 5670 will perform a better and use less power. i think it would perform like a 9800 GTX
