I currently have an Asus Essentio. The full specs are in the link ( http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail.jsp?skuId=46026... ). With about $500, should I upgrade it? Or the other option would be, sell it for $300-350, (which is confirmed) and have about $800 for a new one. I want to use it for gaming, as this is the primary use of it. I have a moniter, keybord, speekers and moniter. Also a copy of win 7 64 bit (i'm saving it for when I choose which one i'm doing). So all in all, what would get the best specs for the low budget. The games I want to play, are, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Star Craft 2, Crysis 2 and 3, Star Wars the old republic (currently playin that), and when it comes out, The elder scrolls online. Sorry for bad spelling.

The board is probably not very upgradeable.
$800 plus your Win 7 should get you quite an improvement.
