I have old computer and it's really bad.
Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, GeForce GT 9400, 4 GB RAM 333MHz, 1 TB Drive, Windows 10. I don't remember everything. And what can I do now? I must play on lowest resolution with lowest settings.

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.
