You can see specifications here: Operating System Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3 CPU Intel Pentium 4 Northwood 0.13um Technology RAM 1,00GB Single-Channel DDR @ 200MHz (3-3-3-8) Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. 8IPE1000-G/L (Socket 478) 22 °C Graphics aidata 725BF (1280x1024@60Hz) 256MB NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 (Undefined) Storage 149GB Maxtor 6G160E0 (SATA) 41 °C 931GB Seagate Desktop USB Device (USB (SATA)) 53 °C Optical Drives TSSTcorp CDW/DVD SH-M522C Audio HD Webcam C270 300 W I have been using for years. For last years, it was very hard to use the computer. For example even opening 3-4 tabs in a browser. I have 2 gb rams more but they cause to restart pc so i took them off. Now only 1 gb there and since last week, it restarted. It is kingston but maybe it spent its life too i dont know. Now i will have a laptop but i want to use that desktop too. With this motherboard, i think it wont do any effect changing cpu or adding more rams or gpu. IF i change motharboard, i think i have to change case too. I can spend money on it but i dont know if it is worth it. ALl i want is surfing freely, being able to open 6-7 tabs at same time, multiprocessing. And i will use some programs like eclipse, visual studio. Is there anyway to upgrade while keeping some parts ?Not only hdd. I think i will buy used ones probably because i dont want to spend more money, because of laptop and i dont want so much expectations like playing games. And it will be really hard to leave this computer, so i want to keep some parts but i think it wont be possible. If i try to sell, they wont cost so much money so i wont try it. But i spent reallly much money on this computer. I boguht 3 times cpu, 2 times extra ram, 3 times psu, 4 times motherboard, 2 times gpu. Maybe i could buy a really good core sytstem with that money but i bought at different times. SO it was hard for me to do it.

Please state exactly what you want to do. Do you want to upgrade components, or do you want to troubleshoot your computer so it runs properly?
