Looking for Best Budgeted CPU and GPU for Asus M4A78-HTPC motherboard

I have Asus M4A78-HTPC motherboard, processor is AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+, Built-in GPU ATI Radeon Hd 3200 with 1GB RAM.

I need to upgrade the CPU and GPU as i'm unable to do Live Streaming using OBS Software. When i check the benchmark it says you need to upgrade the CPU and GPU. There is another problem, i have internet which is 16mbps download and <1mbps upload.

Do i really need to change the CPU and GPU, if so what is best cost effective solution. OR is their any other solution with just changing CPU or just GPU.

Thank you for your time in advance.
