    A P2??!? Is this a joke? Those things dont even exist anymore! Try a P4, way better, and very cheap. $50 I think... Boards are even cheaper!

    For which you'd also have to buy a new motherboard and RAM, and probably a new power supply.
    Unless you've got all the components and they still work, old machines like that simply aren't worth bothering with.

    Most of it looks pretty non-upgradeable, but you might be able to change the hard disk, I presume it's a standard USB powered 2.5" job.

    Hehe I wish. I've just installed Extraction Point for FEAR, god it's hard! It also eats your frame rate, I've had to turn settings from high to medium, and still it runs worse than the original game!
