upgrade = new computer

the only thing I would salvage from that is the PSU if that is a good brand, which it probably isn't

If you really wanted to upgrade that thing I think you would see the largest increase with a new video card.

yea, the AGP x800XL's are way too expensive

btw, you could always use that money to save up for a new amd64 system when dual core comes out

Are you kidding? $222 will not go very far saving up for a dual core system, hahaha. Brand new technology isn't exactly cheap.
