Well, do you know if the system has been changed since being purchased? If so, what changes have been made?

You could get a new psu, and something like a second hand 750 ti should be great for gaming. A ssd for daily use is always nice,  and another 4 gigs stick. Then you have something way better

I didn't realize you had already responded. You might use the reply button that way I get a notification telling me you have replied. 

Processors: you have the Athlon II x4 635. 95W SKUs max on the stock cooler

  • AMD Phenom II X6 10xxT Six-Core (Thuban core)
  • AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb core) 
  • AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (Heka core) 
  • AMD Phenom II X2 5xx (Callisto core) 
  • AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (Propus) 
  • AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe (Rana) 
  • AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe (Regor) 
  • AMD Sempron Single Core 1xx (Sargas core)
Memory: you currently have 4GB, up to four DIMMs of DDR3, up to 1333 (PC3-10600), configurable to 16GB in dual channel.
 
You also have 4 SATA2 headers for internal drives, so you could install a cheap SSD alongside your 750GB HDD.
 
You could put a decent graphics card as you have a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot available.
 
You have a large amount of upgrade options available. I'd find a used Phenom II x6 1065T for ~$30-$40. Then add another 4GB stick of 1333 DDR3 for $25, add a 240GB SSD for $40 then get a used GTX 960 for $75 you would have a pretty snappy rig for ~$180.

Any of the specs listed there could have been changed since he owned it.
