i once had an i3 540 and its not to be scoffed at, i say get a better gpu and more space in terms of storage, but if you must upgrade, you can see if you can get a quad on the same platform or move to sandy, but if ou are seling get a better gpu first

use cpuz , hwinfo64 or pc wizard to find your system info like ram maker

if you have no lags during gameplay then no need to upgrade

for upgrade we need your budget
otherwise upgrade your graphics card atleast upto gtx 550t

worth?
Looks like you want to sell your rig

How do you use cpuz or hwinfo64 ?

In the start command section..?

Anyways, no I am not selling, just looking for FUTURE upgrades for some new 3D games and movies.

MY biggest question is: the ACPI x64 BASED PC?
What upgrade?

your whole system is a pc, capable of running 64 bit programs.
your psu and gfx card could use upgrading. for example, an 80+ rated, 500-550w psu with 30+ amps on the +12v rail. get one from known brands like antec, sea sonic, corsair, enermax, xfx etc. next would be a gfx card- even a 6670 1 gb gddr5 would be an upgrade. so depending on budget (from low end to higher end),
6670 ($70-80) 1 gb gddr5
6770 1 gb gddr5
6850 1 gb gddr5
gtx 560 1 gb gddr5
gtx 560 ti 1 gb gddr5
radeon hd 6950 2 gb gddr5.
