  1. List of the CPU's supported by your board http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3A/#CPUS
    You need another 2GB RAM. And with 6670 it will be a good improvement.
  2. Suprising that board does not seem to support phenom ii and athlon ii quads. That said, grab the fastest quad that board will take, bump ram to 4gb, and upgrade card to 6670 or above and you should see a nice jump.
