The best upgrade you can do is to replace your video card. The GeForce GTS 250 is pretty old. You will also probably need to replace the power supply as well. We need to know the power supply you currently have. You will need to open your computer to see that.

Looks like a 300W PSU with a 700W sticker to me. Get yourself a seasonic S12II 520W or G-550.
