I think you need to buy new keyboard too, your space button might be broken.

Speaking of upgrade...I think it is best to buy new pc. Investing in such old machines is not a good ideea. Save some money, sell your actual PC and buy new one. What you got there it isnt that bad in fact I think you can run pretty smooth on medium graphics WoT.

The only reason you should upgrade this computer is if you are planning to upgrade the rest later and keep some parts. You are already probably bottlenecked buy your CPU and will not notice much differencein upgrading your graphics card.


You will need to basically buy a new computer if you want to see some reasonable performance increase.
