Hello, I have a GeForce GT 9500 for my gpu, and an intel core 2 duo 2.2ghz processor (I know that upgrading the cpu also means motherboard and ram). I am looking to upgrade one of the two. I primarily want to game. Which should I upgrade first?

unfortunately both rather behind the times.
What is your budget? upgrading Cpu/mobo would probably not give you much of an increase in performance because you'd still be GPU limited. However, if you buy a new GPU, you would probably be CPU limited.
Honestly, your games would be CPU limited right now. You'd have a lot of GPU Power going to waste with a 7970. A SB core i3 is a solid update from your core 2 duo, and 7850 can handle anything at 1920x1080 right now
