Specs -
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N68-AM Plus
Graphics: GeForce 9500 GT
Processor: 2.80 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X2 240
Memory: 4096 Megabytes DDR2

    If you want to just do a minor upgrade I'd recommend an AMD Phenom x4 955 cpu with a 6870 graphics card like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103808&cm_re=x4_955-_-19-103-808-_-Product and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127545&cm_re=6870-_-14-127-545-_-Product

    If you want to gut the system you can go with Aznshinobi's guide http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore $450 dollar budget build going with the i3 2100/H61 set up. You'd upgrade your cpu, gpu, mobo, ram, and OS in that case.
