You are unlikely to be able to upgrade processor beyond a minor speed increase. RAM is also likely to be almosted "maxed out". So you are then into a motherboard, processor & ram replacement. The machine looks generally ATX standard and supports SATA. So that should be as far as you need to go. As long as you keep the graphics card power to a mimimum. In that case you would also want to replace the PSU.
But as you say it is a works machine, it is probably easier to argue the financial case for complete system repalcement. The price difference between new MB, Proc & RAM and a new new tower are going to be fairly small.
