    it would be pretty cheap to upgrade it completely (~$100 not including a harddrive) but it would be an average computer nothing special. all together i dont think it would be worth it to upgrade it all

    if you upgrade it would still be kinda crappy. If i were you i would not upgrade, suffer a little longer with the one you have now, and save and build a brand new computer

    Okay answer this: What are you going to be using it for?!?!?! because if it just surfing and average use i'd be a good computer but if you want like vista or 7 when it comes out that wont run it so in the long run
    it'd be better to just get about $700 anf go buy a brand new computer
