I am new to all of this and I am trying to find a temporary solution increase my gaming experience on my crappy emachine I baught back in 04'. I only use my PC to play WoW and fantasy football.

Here is the PC I have:

anyway, my question is... how upgradeable is this? I really want to save money and stay on a tight budget.

What are some things you can suggest to increase performance? Should I or can I install a new system board? Do I only need to repalce the CPU and GPU?

Whats the best way to go about this without having to spend over $300

Save the $300 for a new machine - check out some of the threads here at THF, there are many starting at $500 that are modern gaming rigs.

AM2 and DDR1? Not really much to upgrade.
^+1 for spending more to get a new rig.
