Unfortunately, you cannot go anywhere with this CPU socket. You have the best CPU you can have for the socket. This computer is designed for web browsing and word processing. If the computer has a PCI express slot you could add a dedicated graphics card but it would bottleneck on the CPU so badly it wouldn't be worth it. Is there a chance you could post a link to the system you bought?

That system is not meant to run any games. There's no point messing with it

If you could upgrade the GPU, that would be a reasonable path. It could run games, but it totally depends on the game.
