My Dell inspiron 531s needs upgraded.

I have a Dell Inspiron 531s, with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2.10 GHz Proc. And I am interested into making this PC a gaming pc. Additional specs: NVIDIA 8400 Ge Force 512 mb graphics, 2.00 GB DDr3 Ram, Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate. I was thinking of putting in the: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+ Brisbane 3.0GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor, let me know if you think that is a good idea. Also I was wondering what you guys think would make this PC play games great... Please leave your ideas for me to pay attention to. Thanks.

  1. I looked all over Dells documents for the 531s and couldn't find the supported CPU list. Anyone else have better luck than me?
  2. That build is not worth upgrading.. It wont do well with newer games
  3. I'm working with a $400.00 budget here. Could you suggest me to a cheap, durable, yet fast build? Or does anyone else have suggestions? I have a list of CPUs supported at http://pastebin.com/GpnK2pJK.
