Sorry, but your PC is too old to consider an upgrade. Save your money for a new PC. A budget PC at around 500$ would be alot (and i mean A lot) more powerfull than what you have now.

I was reading the specs posted and the stuff was so old I couldn't even comprehend what he was talking about. Then again Im sort of new to PC gaming

Sure he can get an old 3850 AGP. But it's a waste of money upgrading a system that old IMO.
