Please get a new computer. That CPU will bottleneck pretty much any graphics card you get. And 5 gb of ram.... wut?

It's time to upgrade to a new computer, that dual core cpu is getting old.

If that 5GB of RAM is correct, about 1.3GB of it isn't even usable since you are running a 32-bit OS.

An SSD upgrade is the only sensible upgrade i can think of to a computer like that.

I thought about suggesting an ssd but don't think it would be worthwhile in this situation. It would be better to save whatever money that is available for an upgrade now, toward buying a new computer in the future.

I'd install 64-bit Windows to make use of all the ram. Any PC would benefit from an SSD but then again you should save for a new PC.
