  1. It really depends on your price rnage, for under 100 get the 6770. For 160 get the 6870 for 230 get the 560 ti.
  2. That is an extremely slow dual core, i'm surprised it can load windows, please upgrade that first.
  3. You need a whole new computer

    Hi, The E2140 is an excellent overclocking chip, it very easily goes up to 2.8-3 GHz if your motherboard allows for overclocking, if you are unfamiliar with overclocking read a few tutorials off the net before attempting.

    You did not mention the wattage of your PSU but I always assume around 300-350 you can check the wattage by removing the side panel and reading the chart on the side of the PSU, if you want a quick graphic upgrade check out this:

    HIS H675F1GD Radeon HD 6750 1GB $99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161379 But I would recommend a good $50 PSU in the 450 watt range for the overclock and the GPU.

    Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ($34 after rebate) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153023


    You do not need a new computer, you just need to tweak the hardware you have... plus a GPU...
