Technology progresses so fast that what you now have is an antiquated machine. It's time to think of either a new build, or purchase a new computer.
You can purchase a new computer with tower, keyboard and mouse, and a 18.5 LCD monitor for about $400. This includes Windows 7 32-bit, 2GB RAM, a AMD Sempron CPU, and 500GB hdd.
If you can live with your current monitor, keyboard and mouse, you can pickup a Compaq - Presario Desktop / AMD Sempronââ€ž˘ Processor / 2GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive with Windows 7 64-bit for $319.00.
These are currently offered at Best Buy. I'm not advocating Best Buy, this is the result of a quick google. I'm sure that if you search you will find more and better deals out there.
