What is your computer? Is the motherboard upgradeable? These are probably the two most important questions you can ask yourself right now. After that then you can upgrade. Most socket 478 are hard to come by now a days.

Yeah a dell is not the best start out for a gaming pc. Sorry for the bad news kid. Maybe if you try to upgrade the ram and the video card.

Start with a good Video Card and maybe some RAM. a nice midrange card and 1GB of RAM goes a long way compared to onboard graphics and 256 or 512Mb RAM.
The combo can be had for around the price of a midrange CPU and will do twice as much for your gaming graphics

I've heard dell computers are not very good to change hardware like graphics card etc... because it won't be compatible and cause problems but acer on the other hand is good at changing hardware which makes it compatible

Dell's can be aggravating to work on but changing the graphics cards is not as difficult as changing the CPU.
