What do you need the system for? Games? Multitasking?

You need a better motherboard, like ASUS or something if it's Intel.

What kind of RAM is that?

Get a 17" screen. Youll be sorry with the 15 cause its too small. If your going to be playing games, what video card are you planning on getting?

You still didn't answer the other questions.

Power supply:
RAM:
Video card:

We need some details. And since you're doing all-round stuff, might as well get an AMD.

Okay if you want to do any kind of 3-d gaming, that integrated crap has got to go. It's worthless and i think you should get a real graphics card. And I really don't think you need that big of a power supply. Here's a better one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103924
