I want to ask you if my computer can run windows 10, or I should upgrade something in order for me to install windows 10.
Thank you for your time.

My opinion:
I would give 20 euros for additional 4GB RAM and do the upgrade to Windows 10 without any other thought.

SSD drives although faster, are more expensive and you will give a lot of money to get one with 500GB space. If your disk is still good, you can stay with it.

These are the performance ratings for the processor(CPU) and graphics(GPU) in your old computer.

Its ASUS AM1M-A motherboard has 2 DIMM slots and supports up to 32 GB of DDR3-1333/DDR3-1600 RAM.
It currently has only 4 GB, so you should consider adding at least another 4 GB.

It appears to have a 500 GB hard disk drive(HDD).
You should consider switching to a solid state drive(SSD).

Doing both of the above should improve speed and snappiness.
However, that money would be better spent in a refurbished computer which has newer and faster hardware.
