There is no "smooth gaming performance" from the Geforce 210 for intense, modern gaming.

You would have to upgrade your video card and possibly your power supply, to say the least.

What games were you planning on playing?

DDR2 memory, GeForce 210 and an older dual core CPU gives us a good idea of overall system performance.
Even a GPU upgrade (and possibly required power supply upgrade) won't really help that much...
the rest of the system won't have the "juice" to properly drive the GPU.
My own personal feeling is that you might do better by saving up for a new system.

Well.. thanks for your suggestions,Upgrading will always gonna boost system performance that's for sure & I shall be glad to do so.. but currently i'm not in a state of doing it.. So i want to know that if I stick to my current configurations & only install a 64 bit OS(Windows 7 or XP) instead of 32 bit counterpart thn will my system be able to deliver me a better gaming performance upto some extent???As a matter of fact i want to tell u tht i've a INtel Core 2 duo E7300 CPU(X86).Can I even go for installing 64 bit OS with my above mentioned X86 CPU??

Your E7300 is a 64 bit CPU, so yes, you can install a 64 bit OS.
Even though going from Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit will allow the system to use all
4GB of the installed RAM, it really won't make that much difference for gaming performance.

There are no software "tweaks" to get the Geforce 210 to even come close to playing the games you wish to play.
Not even close.

Major upgrade, or let it go.

You need a new motherboard or basically a new computer that is a Pentium 3, I don't know if you can even find any upgrades for it. That technology is 10 to 12 years old.
