The other duplicate thread seems to have been deleted by FE.

kat64, The specs you have posted show what that motherboard will take. What are the upgrades you are hoping to do? you haven't said what is currently on it (which CPU, how much ram is on etc.) I presume you have XP on there at present?

I do not think it is worth the money upgrading this as it is pretty old tech. Get yourself a motherboard/processor/memory bundle from the likes of Novatech.

Thank You Lotvic and Chronus, I think you are right I reckon I can build a pc for just a few pounds more than trying to upgrade this one. Many thanks for your input . Regards
