any suggestions are welcome.
Will it be possible to play assasins creed 2,L4D2,etc?

Thanks in advance.
That really isn't a gaming card. The only thing you can do to improve things is replace it. Fortunately that doesn't have to be that expensive. For around $60 you can get an HD4670 which is several times more powerful.
Your CPU is still OK although overclocking it if at all possible would be a good idea. A better question is your PSU. To tell you what card you can handle we need to know how good your power supply is as well as your budget.
No, OCing a 9400GT really wont help much. It's simply not a gaming card. For some perspective the card is on par with a 6600GT which was a midrange gaming card 5 years ago. Like I said the HD4670 is pretty cheap and several times more powerful, approximately by a factor of 3. If you want something better these should be ok for your PSU;
9800GT($90-100) < HD4770($110) < HD5750($130)
