1. You can't change it to 2GB for the graphics card.
2. You can upgrade to 8GB of ram.
3. You can't upgrade to a i5 or i7.

To verify which memory you have installed at the moment please publish speccy.

You can't change it to 1GB or 2GB. You probably can only upgrade your ram. Playing the latest game would be a problem since the processor is only clocked at 1.40GHz.

The latest game usually requires a higher clocked GHz to play and it might be problem if you try to play. For example, Call of duty black ops minimum processor to play it is a core 2 duo E6600 which is clocked at 2.4GHz.

Keep in mind that when looking at specs for games, the minimum levels are merely to get the game to start, the recommended levels are usually for a consistent frame rate of 30 while at medium visual quality.
