    Errr, if you have a 5 year old Presario your options are limited severely to none of the above. $ 700 dollars would buy you a useable new system which you could upgrade at a later date (not five years from now tho`)

  2. With a budget of 350, you can probably get a decent graphic card and more RAM. Check http://www.newegg.com. I buy all my PC components from there.

    Depending on the age of your computer, you may be better off getting a new computer. 2000/2001 is pretty obselete. You probably won’t be able to install a AMD64 Dual Core processor in there. The mobo probably doesn’t support it. I would just buy a new computer.

    You’d be MUCH better off just buying a new computer. Look at what you can get for $ 500 or less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompare.asp?SubCategory=10&CompareItemList=N82E16883107016%2CN82E16883103012%2CN82E16883103024%2CN82E16883107104%2CN82E16883107103 and for slightly more, you can get these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductCompare.asp?SubCategory=10&CompareItemList=N82E16883109003%2CN82E16883102675%2CN82E16883107029%2CN82E16883103011

    Here’s why you don’t want to EVER upgrade to Windows Vista:
    The “Palladium” operating system that they’re talking about in those articles is Windows Vista. Palladium was Microsoft’s code name for Vista, before they thought of calling it Vista.
