It's not all about GHz and I wish people would get that out of their heads. The CPU is still good and I'd check to see if they have a utility to OC or if it's possible through the bios. The GPU is a turd, and from what it looks like probably used to be a Radeon 5870. If that's the case the PSU is probably their 525W version. This is good enough to go up to a 980ti if you so desired.
All in all for 275 you didn't do bad. The machine is a good platform and if their crappy rebranded Asetek cooler isn't leaking you've fared well. There are a few things you can do to really make this thing nice. Firstly, clean it up. Take the cooler off and clean it, get all the dust off. Put new TIM on the CPU (only a grain of rice size in the center of the IHS). Get all the dust out of the case and make sure the PSU is clean too. Next in terms of upgrade the first thing to do is get a better GPU in there. If the PSU is the 525W unit stay away from AMD cards. Definitely an SSD of course too, but prioritize GPU if you want to game.
Finally if you can't OC the CPU at all an i7 960 can be had for less than 100 all day on Ebay.

I recently had an i7 960 and Sabertooth board to test performance with. I had 0 hiccups when gaming anything meaning to say if you could get the i7 920 to 3.2GHz like that thing you'd be fine.
