you could buy new AMD processor and MTB for almost $104. Of course you'd need a MTB that takes your older RAM. You could get a MTb that has both DDR and SDRAM slots though, so upgrading RAM would be an option in the future.

Depending on what use you want the system for, buying a P3 is not a very future minded choice.
