I have a computer with a AMD Athlon II x2 "Regor" central processor,
and I would like to know if it is still ANY good for the latest in gaming?
If not could you please tell me how I might go about upgrading.

If it plays the games you like at an acceptable FPS then no, but since your asking it is a little long in the tooth. What motherboard are you using?

It's ok for gaming but not great I mean I personally would go with nothing less than a Phenom II and even that is starting to show it's age. What games are you playing and at what settings?

Depends on your games, outdated, yes, "still any" good, yes also. Need rest of system specs esp. mobo to fully answer and suggest upgrades.

My motherboard is a Dell 04GJJT, with the integrated Radeon HD 4200 graphics, and I have a 300W PSU.
Would perhaps installing a Radeon HD 7750 do more for my gaming than upgrading the CPU?

Yes a graphics card is what you need 1st and a 7750 is suited to the CPU which is very dated but not totally unusable.

A new video card is a good idea but are you sure your motherboard has a PCI-e 16X? This is a picture of your motherboard and both slots look like PCI not PCI-e.

Yes I'm sure my motherboard has a PCI-e x16 slot, but it doesn't have a little clip on the back end.

O thats why I thought it was PCI not PCI-e I'm use to seeing the clip on PCI-e 16X slots. As long as it is PCI-e 16X then you are fine.
