Based on this (and assuming a 64-bit version OS), you can upgrade to a max 16GB (2x8GB RAM). If you have two 1GB RAM modules, you'll need to replace what you have. If you have one 2GB RAM module, you could add one to it. Personally, I'd recommend replacing what you have with at least 8GB 2x4GB RAM. Again, this assumes you have a 64-bit OS installed.

As for the processor, the best I'd recommend would be the Intel Core I7-3770.

What you can do really depends on your budget. What is "LOW"? $25? $250? We need a figure to work with here.

Well, I'm doubting you're going to want to pay for a new board these days. Here's a list of compatible motherboards for the Intel Core I7-3770 and will support 32GB of RAM.

If you're willing to go with a used motherboard, I'd recommend a board with either the B75 chipset (less likely to have been used in overclocking) or the Z77 chipset.
