    What are you wanting to do with the computer? If you're wanting to play the latest games, then you're out of luck. That would require a massive update that would render most of these spare parts useless. If you just want an everyday computer to surf the web and burn discs, then what you have will work.

    Unless there's something specific that you need to do that you can't currently accomplish with this computer, then I would stick with what you have and save your money for a new computer when you can afford it.

    Agreed, it's not too bad as it is, but upgrading it much more would be a waste of time.
