Well your pretty limited as far as upgrading the processor since you would almost certainly have to change the motherboard, besides the processor is quite fast.\015\012If your interested in mainly gaming the first thing I would upgrade is the RAM maxing it out. \015\012For the E521 your looking at a max of 4GB\015\012http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Dimension%20E521 this website is a great place to buy RAM. You probably only have 1GB in the computer now so I would recommend added another 3GB to hit the 4 max this will cost you about $65 at crucial.com\015\012
