your computer is not that bad but...
if your a gamer certainly you cannot play any new games since the frame rate will be too low
you can upgrade to 8 gb of ddr2 ram which is the max ram you can install
gt 9400 was a good card but this was a long time ago...
if you decide to upgrade then you have to pay at least 150 (in my case euros) for a new ssd drive + 4 gb ddr2 ram and an r7 radeon graphics card ....
with the same amount of money you can buy from amazon or ebay a refurbished desktop socket 1155 i3....
i have an inferior computer than your, a fujitsu esprimo but since it is a branded one i decided to keep it but i will have to add a new hard drive and a 4 gb of ddr2 of ram regardless of the amount of money i have to spend
that computer can serve me very good on audio and video rendering, i forgot to mention that i have to buy also a low profile graphics card such as sued nvidia quadro fx
the decision is yours
good luck my friend

It is an older computer now. The graphics chip is particularly weak by current standards. What are you wanting to play on it?
If it's newer, demanding games (Battlefield 1, Watch Dogs 2 etc.) then a new computer will be the only option. The upgrades needed to run these properly would not be possible without replacing everything. If it's only titles with low system requirements (e.g. CS:GO, as per username..) then upgrading the GPU would be worthwhile. Upgrading memory, and fitting SSD as per above, would give overall system improvements, although they wouldn't do much for that particular game.
