    Probably get a legitimate copy of Windows.

    How can you see that it is not a legitimate copy of Windows?

    You have this motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2304#sp
    You have 2 RAM slots, which can support up to 4 GB. (Windows 7 x32 can support up to 3GB/3,25GB/3,5GB and Windows 7 x64 can support 'every' amount of RAM)
    Now you have 2GB of RAM.
    Processor can be upgraded as well, you now have a Pentium D processor (exactly the same one as mine :p)
    You can upgrade to a Core 2 Duo Processor, which is much faster.
    You can also get a SATA harddrive instead of a IDE harddrive.. (if that is true)
    Or an SSD.
    Also you can have a PCI-e videocard... which is needed for 'good' gaming

    Honestly I would not put any money into that old of a system; at least not a new cpu. While the 945 chipset your board has can run some of the core2 cpus, it can only run them at the slower 800fsb and not the faster 1066.

    In addition, the gigabyte site does not list driver support for your board with win7 [only driver shown is the sound driver] When you install an unsupported os, you are a beta tester; it may work and it may not work satisfactorily.

    If you really really want to spend money and upgrade this system, I would invest in more ram and a lower end video card; something like this one.

    As I said before I would not invest money into this old of a system.

    True, a plenty new system would be MUCH better :)
    It's a waste of money if you spend money on that old system, since it doesn't increase performance a lot.
    A new system with at least an Intel i3 processor is 300+% faster than yours
