Default Wanting to upgrade.

Here are my current specs.

Specs.jpg picture by Richie1000 - Photobucket

I can run games, but not newer games like Fallout 3, it just crashes when I open it.
I want to get some more ram and a better graphics card, what do you suggest I buy?
Or should I get a whole new pc?

Yeah, give us a budget and we'll work with you. That mobo won't really support much, so you may as well upgrade. It would be a waste of money to buy anything for it.

Well, It wont be my own money as i'm only 14.
I'm trying to get a new computer as a birthday-christmas gift combination. So it might be around like £400
But I doubt I could get anything good for that.

You could get plenty good for that, something much faster than that machine you have now. I don't know much about UK sites though, so I'm sure someone can hook you up.
