Here are the specifications for your motherboard:

If you can find a very inexpensive s939 dual core processor and upgrade the system ram to 4x1GB DDR-400 memory, it should be a good system for everyday usage.

RAM is your biggest bang for buck, you didn't mention HDD. If it's 5400 rpm going to a 7200 RPM Drive may be worth it as well.
