I have $200 to upgrade my CPU or Graphics card if possible, I don't care about an SSD right now.
Just invest in a decent GPU and you can find a quadcore on ebay for your FM1 mobo they should be cheap as dirt right now

but if you already have a quad get a gpu and overclock the apu your only shot at bring the performance up

AMD A8 Series A8 3850 2 9 GHz Quad Core CPU Processor AD3850WNZ43GX Socket FM1 | eBay

MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 TF Gaming 2GB GDDR5 2DVI HDMI Display | eBay

Now if you upgrade the psu to 500w your good lol
