Your first upgrade should be the GPU the 8500 GT is not a good card for gaming even when it was new it wasnt a good gaming card.

Second upgrade would be to a Quad core.

Third would be another 2GB of RAM

But I would go for the GPU first.

Look for a ATI HD 5770 or better or if you tight on budget go for a little older card like an HD 4850 or better. Without a better GPU it is pointless to upgrade the processor and until you can upgrade OC the Pentium D as high as you can go it should be able to do at least 3.6GHZ or better no problem just whatch temps.

Don't go for the Core 2 Duo, go quad-core and the GPU. Should be OK. I just upgraded my sys to a quad-core and 5750 hopefully for 5 years.
