Question Gamingh on Acer M5100. Is it possible?

I have an Acer Aspire M5100 desktop that i would like to game on. My current stats are as follows:

-AMD Athlon64 x2 dual core processor 4400+(2.3ghz each core)
-ATI Radeon Catalyst 1250 onboard graphics (when i type dxdiag in the run box it tells me i have 384mb video memory but at acer.com this computer has only 256mb)
-3gb DDR2 RAM
-Vista Premium
-i have no PPU but i plan to eventually get an AGEIA Physx

Can i game on this PC? Do i need to upgrade to a quad core? If so will a quad core fit? Will i have to get a different heatsink and fan to use a quad core or will it come with the right one? Also do i need to upgrade to a graphics card instead of the onboard graphics?
