    No idea on the Windows 7 thing but if you really want a gaming machine you'd probably be better off starting with a new machine.

    Figure out a budget and work from there.

    Well, you are supposed to have 1GB of RAM for Windows 7 32 bit and 2GB for 64 bit versions so your low RAM isn't helping.

    You neglected to say what kind of graphics card you have. For a gaming PC that is very important. However, that said, looking at the other components it appears that you will have to replace so many parts, you might as well build a whole new PC as JMMD said.
