  1. No matter what you upgrade it to its gonna play games faster. Also consider upgrading graphics card.
  2. 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.
  3. if i buy core 2 duo & 5770. can it serve 4-5 years playing games & multitasking without a problem??
  4. 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.
