I'll be straight up honest, I'm not very smart when it comes to building a pc, Its like another language. However, things can be learned. But I need to know how can I get an old computer like this to run a game like "The Isle" with great performance. what parts do I need, and what are some recommendations.

Keep it as a secondary office PC and build a new modern PC.

What is your budget to upgrade? From my research, the E521 is from 2006, making it basically useless to upgrade. You would need a whole new computer.

the PC is very old and the RAM it uses is DDR2

Socket is the AM2 generation socket which is 14 years old now since the release of May 2006.

you can jolly well junk that PC into the trash
