What is my computer worth?
and what ugrades should be made? ( I would like to play and watch the new 3D games and movies)
Right now my computer plays Call of Duty Modern Warfare, COD MW2, COD WaW, Medal of Honor, Unreal Tournament 2004 online in high 1920*1080 resolution very well.

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
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.
