Default Upgrade Help

I have an HP Pavilion 304w that i want to upgrade. You can find the product specs on this page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/g...3&lc=en#N1003B

edit. my computer takes ddr 2100, and it is an athlon xp 1.67ghz 2000+

From what I can gather, you have the same mobo as I do. That means you can have up to 2gig of RAM, as it only has two slots. PC2100 is dirt cheap (basically), and since you can't overclock you can buy the value stuff.

Hard drives have gotten pretty cheap lately, so get whatever you can afford.

For a burner, get a double-layer DVD burner, as it can burn everything.

Here's a few links (NewEgg, of course):
