Okay i have a 5 year old PC now, its working fine, i hope will do for couple of years when i manage to buy new one.

So my mb is ASUS A8-VM SE and i was thinking about this graphic card:

EVGA nVidia GeForce GT520, 1024MB, DDR3, 64bit.

This is all the info i can get, here is the link of some pics:

This is the full link, it contains prices, and all other stuff, its on Serbian, but pictures are easy found here so i guess it wont be a problem. Its pretty cheap also.

Thank you for help.

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
That graphics card should fit and work in your older computer no problem.

The AMD Athlon II X2 270 is a Socket AM3 processor, the ASUS A8-VM SE motherboard is a Socket 939 - it will not work (or even fit). Here is the list of processors supported by your motherboard

Thank you. So what should i upgrade here is my specs:

NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS 256MB
AMD Athlon 3000+ 1.8GHz

Should i buy graphic listed above or new processor to improve gaming performance?

Or how can i overclock this processor with my motherboard (bios) or whatever since i watched 100 tutorials but no one has options in bios like i do. Should i flash bios then.

Thank you for everything.

Unless you're willing to get a new motherboard, CPU and ram, I'm thinking you will get the most improvement with the graphics card upgrade.
You shouldn't need to flash BIOS unless you're having issues.
I'll get back to overclocking, running late now.

Hello there. I have sucessfuly flashed my bios. Now still i DON'T see the option to overclock my processor like other people have.

My motherboard is A8V-VM SE.
Is it possible to overclock via some programs, or i have to buy new motherboard?

Motherboards designated VM (value model) are primarily made for the business consumer and do not (usually) have an option for overclocking. You would need a new mobo to overclock in any effective manner.
