    depends on what kind of mobo it has, and other components, like what video card and what kind of ram. how much are you going to pay for it?

    $300 is a pretty good, if you're just using it for basic programs it will work fine

    what size hd does it have? check motherboard or friend to see what ram it has in sdram or ddr & # of ram slots. maybe upgrade to 750meg or 1 gig depending on ram slots. cpu upgrade might be limted depending if motherboard can take the prescott cpu p4
