keep your hard drive, optical drives, and memory to hold you off until you can get your better ram.. then reassemble that compaq of yours and sell it to someone else for like 500 dollars and buy a new graphics card or whatever else you may want

Current Build:
Intel 8700k | 16GB G.skill Trident Z | Z370 Gigabyte Auros Gaming Extreme |
Asus GTX1080 Strix | Corsair H100i V2 | Corsair 750D | Corsair RM850X
