Re: Is it worth trying to upgrade??
Save your money for a new build. You could reuse hard drives, cd drives and case if it is not a dell or hp or other type of prebuilt proprietary case. You would want new cpu, ram, mb, psu and gpu. $500 would get you a nice system. any money spent on upgrading would be wasted if it could not be used later and at this point psu is all you could upgrade and use later and that would not give you any performance increase.
