what do you use your computer for?

I would say bigger HD more RAM , a new mobo, and a faster cpu.

But for 200 dollars you should just get 1gb memory and a bigger hd

The answer depends in what you use your PC for

But more RAM is a must

Here's what you do. Sell your processor, mobo, and memory (let's say you get $100 back for it, but you can probably get a little more. That's 300 to work with. Then get:

Athlon 64 3500+ socket 939
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103533
89.00

BIOSTAR TForce6100-939 Micro ATX Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138264
72.99

1GB PC3200 PNY Memory, CAS Latence = 2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820178086
99.99

Total of 261.98, which means you'll have enough money to pay for shipping. I made you had had onboard graphics, but invest $150 more or so in a graphics card and you'll have a half decent gaming system.

That's a nice little budget setup, I might have to use that sometime.

Why thank you. Throw in a video card and it can handle games pretty well.

GECUBE Radeon X800GTO 256MB PCI-Ex16 CrossFire-Ready
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814241021
69.99

It has GDDR2 instead of GDDR3, but for a budget system you'll be looking pretty good.
