dood no offense this thing sucks, theres nothing u can do to make it acceptabley good. sell the parts on ebay as antiques and hope you can get enough money to buy a fan. maybe save the hard drive for extra storage, as long as its not on the same ide channel as a good new one. its not worth the time effort or money you wud put onto it.

Thats way too old to seriously upgrade. The Mobo is most likely a socket 5. has some really good deals on hardware if your looking to build a decent machine for your money.
