Default Computer case, good or a no-go?

Hello guys yesterday i got a shell (case) of a computer which is a Optiplex GX260
I want to put at least some 6gb of RAM for video gaming and then a decent video gaming cards which might let me play some good graphics card game , NOT ADVANCE VIDEO GAMES ( as in I hope they do not required a expensive graphics card) This case closes on the back but does not fully clip to each other any ideas?

( I COULD TAKE PICTURES AND UPLOAD them)

the ati hd 5770 xfx is a good gaming gpu and it will cost you around $160
as for the ram corsair xms3 3x2gb cost around $90
you need to tell us what your budget is really.
