    I guess the two most important questions ( to me, at least) would be...

    Does your motherboard support a faster chip?
    Is there room for more memory?

    Edit: If the answer is yes, I would be tempted to upgrade and wait to build new for a while. See how the 64bit chip thing shakes out...

    I started off just like you did and just kept picking up parts when I coul;d find them at the right price and I sold all my old parts for half of what I bought my new ones for.I am still upgrading and pretty much have nothing left of the original comp I started with other than the keyboard and mouse and floppy drive and I am only into my complete system (including my speakers,printer,scanner,gamepad etc) for about 600-700 if that.

    It&#39;s going to be a while before 64-bit processors are a reasonable price, I would suggest this is upgrade time, then start saving your money for 64-bit next time.

    Upgrade the motherboard, processor and ram, there are some good deals around if you don&#39;t go for the ultimate specs. Remember to check if your power supply is good enough.

    so what upgrade will be the better bang for the buck:

    -CORSAIR 512MB PC3200 DDR RAM
    -Asus Motherboard for AMD Athlon XP/Duron Processors, Model# A7N8X Deluxe Retail
    -AMD ATHLON XP 2500+ "Barton" 333 FSB PROCESSOR CPU- RETAIL

    &#036;300

    or

    -CORSAIR 512MB PC3200 DDR RAM
    -ABIT IS7,Intel 865PE chipset for Socket 478 P4 ATX motherboard RETAIL
    -Intel Pentium 4 / 2.4CGHz 512k socket 478 Hyper Threading Technology 800 MHz FSB - RETAIL

    &#036;365

    and if i get one of these combinations will all of my other parts work like my videocard and my hard-drive?
