I've had my computer for the past 4 Years and when I look back on the new games and try to play them, well... 3fps isn't a good sign
So I am looking for parts to replace/not replace but don't know what to do. My budget is around £200 but i appreciate if you try to find something as low as possible but giving the best performance.
Thanks for any suggestions!
My Current pc is this:

That CPU looks fine, 2GB of RAM won't be great though, I'd upgrade to 4GB. Then I'd get a graphics card, something like the HD 6850 should be good. You would likely need to upgrade the PSU after adding a GPU too. The Corsair CX-430 430W should be great, the 500W one is good too.
The hd 6850 should be good for ultra high settings on the vast majority of games at the moment. For the RAM I would look at the memory support list for that board on asrock's site. Anything on there will be compatible. With the PSU, a decent 430w unit is fine for the hd 6850 but 500w is good if you plan on adding more hard drives or something.
