If you want to change your CPU with a newer one, you'll need a new mobo with the right socket. Also it has to be able to fit the new graphics card that you'll be getting. And you'll need a PSU powerful enough to support those new components. Also, 2 gigs of ram is just not enough these days...
That's a new system right there.
Anyway, for a GPU I'd recommend 6870 or gtx 560ti, depending on your personal preference.
