It's a cheap quad-core CPU mixed with a cheap GPU that go on cheap motherboards, therefore it's only for budget systems and will not even remotely compare to the hardware you probably have already.

the dual graphics are when you pair the on chip graphics with a pre-determined amd videocard in a sort of hybrid crossifire. Doesn't really work in a lot of games though (I think it only works for Directx 11 games) which you probably wouldn't want to play with such low level performance anyway.

upgrade to AMD Phenom II x4 955, it's $120 and compatible with your MoBo, (if the MoBo is AM3, which I think the Athlon 2 is)

wouldn't really reccommend upgrading, the difference you will see beetween a athlon II x4 and a phenom 955 would be minimal especially since a 5770 won't give you any bottlenecking on the Athlon.
