If it's this you're referring to then the CPU is good enough to play any game at good settings and you can put 8GB of RAM in it and a decent graphics card and you should be good to go for playing just about any game available at high and ultra settings.

However a good cooler will be needed and maybe a new case to get better airflow but the cooler is the main thing.

Oh and you'll need a better PSU, 250W isn't going to cut it so get a good 500W PSU as well.

So in total that's 8GB RAM + Graphics Card + CPU Cooler + Good PSU and you'll be enjoying good gaming.
