NEED help upgrading an amd athlon (tm) ii x2 b24 processor. I would like to know some good but cheap processors.

So I am currently trying to upgrade my small form factor pc into somewhat of a gaming rig. I currently bought a graphics card (Hopefully it fits) and would also be interested in a upgrade in the processor section of my pc.

I'm currently running a Windows 10,

HP Compaq 6005 Pro SFF PC,

x64-based PC

with an AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 B24 Processor,3000 Mhz, 2 core(s).

4.00 GB RAM.

I would like some advice on any possible choices of (affordable) processors. Also let me know if you require any other information and weither i need to change the power supply.

Although that motherboard is based on Socket AM3 (which is discontinued), you most likely cannot upgrade that processor due to BIOS restrictions. Also, that computer has a very tiny "320w" BTX power supply, most likely smaller as I doubt it is rated for 26 amps at +12v, and decidedly much weaker after 6 years, so I wouldn't recommend any graphics card upgrade either.
