Upgrading my PC for gaming. HELP!!

So I've got a 4 year old acer aspire m3920 I think. it's got an intel i5 2300 @2.8Ghz, 3gb of ram, 300watt psu, and that's all I know. I'm not a computer whiz and need some advice on what I need to do to upgrade my pc. I'm planning on spending around £100 on a graphics card, also upgrade the psu and ram. I'm wondering if my cpu is up to date and of its good enough for an upgrade. I do not know what the motherboard is but I've posted some pics. I also have a really old graphics card installed which I am going to replace. So could anyone help recommend what parts need replacing and upgrading, thanks a lot for any help.

Go to Crucial.co.uk and run the system scanner. This will give details of your motherboard and how much RAM it can support.

Then go to the motherboard manufacturers website for more details about the board.
