Everything but the case and power supply , lol. You'll need a motherboard, CPU, memory, video card, sound card (if you don't want to use the integrated sound off the motherboard), some cooling fans, floppy drive, DVD burner, and hard drive. That's pretty much it.

Depending on how much you are willing to spend on the new system will determine on how good you want it to perform.

If you have a part in mind but not sure if it's compatible or not, then feel free to post it on here. I recommend going with an Athlon 64 X2 system.

nothing in the saved shopping cart. but any motherboard that says it is ATX will work with that case, and get a vid card to match (either agp or pci-e), and any ide or sata hard drive will work.....and so on

you should get an internal hard drive.
