You might need to think again, I'm not a gamer but I do know that many games require a great deal of number crunching and extensive video rendering.

You will need a machine with a faster processor and you will need a good quality video card complete with it's own processor and some fast video RAM.

I do not believe it will be possible to upgrade the machine that you have.

Others may correct me, as I said I'm not a gamer.

As MaDef has aready been showing you here there's probably not a lot of upgradability in the SmallFormFactor HP business desktop you have.
Take a look at the two bargains I just listed in this thread:
