    Only thing you could do is buy more ram and upgrade your vga. Possibly your cpu.

    Okay,
    1) More ram.
    2) "Upgrade my vga?"
    3) "Possibly your cpu?"

    Okay, what does (2) & (3) mean?

    cpu, central processing unit, vga is your graphics card, it looks like your graphics are onboard, you dont have a stand alone video card, which is a huge reason why your fps is so low.

    Just looked up the board, you actually have a lot of headroom on this motherboard.

    How much can you spend for this computer as far as upgrades. Also I need to know how many watts are on the power supply unit, if you dont know, open the side, tell me the name and model number of the psu with how many watts.
