Default I need help upgrading my PC for Gaming.

I need to upgrade my pc for gaming. Specifically for Diablo 3 (When it comes out). I would like some help on what I need to upgrade, and how I can acquire it at the lowest cost possible. Here are my pc specs.

I know my computer is crap, but I don't have much money to purchase a new one. I know I need to upgrade my memory I plan on adding a 1 GB ram card ($40). However, I don't know what I else I need to upgrade and exactly what I need to get for gaming.

Thank you for any help

Hi and welcome.
What helps a lot for gaming, is a better video card, and more RAM. I don't know what the game's min requirements are, but knowing that it's a newer game it's probably way out of your league in terms of RAM. but if you already know what type and size of RAM you need, then go for a better video card. and your not gonna get one for under $40 for sure. your looking more in the double zero range. Good Luck
Edit: you probably won't need a new Processor but you could look into it if you have a full wallet.
