And sell all the old parts?
see my links for a very basic idea of what to look for. granted if you wanted to spend a little more say 75-100 dollars more we could up the ante and get you a nice quad core cpu instead.
Also... what would be the bear minimum that would help improve performance if I dont want to buy everytihng?
of course the old parts probably wont get you mcuh say $65 for the everything. so your basically going to end up paying for the gpu.
as a bare minimum id up the ram for 2gb however given that you already ahve a pentium 4 its a bit qestionable. ram came in two standards around that time ddr and ddr2 and which its running is unknown without basically opening up your pc and checking.I found out by looking in a PDF called Owner's Manual that I have a 512MB DDR2 type RAM already in here.

Okay.. so I'll get more RAM. would 4GB be good?
Would you be able to tell me EXACTLY what to get based on that info in the pic up there?
Okay. I'm doing some research right now. How much would a good quad core cpu cost me?
