Hey how are you guys doing? I'll go into specs in a second. First lemme explain. I got this set up from a friend who was getting rid of it. I been using it for about 3 months with no problems. I'd like to upgrade it a bit, I'm wondering if it would be viable to do so.. or scrap it and try for something newer. I would like to the stay in the price range of 100 USD$ to 350$ MAX. I dont wanna spend 350 but if its the difference between some great and something ****ty I'll do it. Cheaper is better tho, I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything.
I do not know if I should upgrade the power supply.
I'd like to keep my current set up just tweak it abit definitely a new case, is it hard moving everything into a new one? Mine has led lights and a neon cathode but I'd like to make upgraded one quite as possible with power supply gaskets, and fan mounts I have a general idea about them just no specific knowledge
I am completly lost on cables to connect motherboard to hd, or dvd, to ANYTHING lol, I'd like to revamp that whole mess in my box
My Current specs: pics to follow.

The Case: ****ty been dropped or kick or something prolly my back in the day partying with my friend. I'd like to get something with a side window if possible.
