    Better not upgrade it. Instead replace it when you can.

    I'll go with gotrootdude on this one - toss it and build/buy yourself a new one, anything else would be a waste of money.

    There is nothing worth the time or money worth upgrading on that computer.... if, at the most someone gave you a stick of 32 or 64mb of RAM... and if it *WORKS* - that's about it.

    If you're on a budget, go to Frys or CostCo and pick up an Emachine set for about $500, includes a 17" monitor. It maybe slow by todays standards, but it'll smoke what you have now. But spend an extra $40 or so so get it up to 256mb at least.
