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.
