I agree with mgallo848. The video card is your weakest link right now. And moving from a 2C/2T dual core to a 2C/4T dual core won't make too much difference. See if you can save up for a 4C/4T quad core.
 
I would say you really need the RAM upgrade with either. As said tho the video card really is your main problem. Here is my upgrade suggestion. This is the most I would suggest without seeing your PSU specs. The 1030 should draw about same power as the old 710.
