Default Graffics sugestions

I was wondering if anybody knew from an economic point if it was cheaper to replace my computer (running only a Pentium 4) or if there was a way to upgrade my processor at a cheaper cost so I can better run some drafting programs (which means I'll have to replace my graphics card)?

if its running a pentium 4, that means the motherboard is probably old too.

slow mobo = slow PC

so id suggest just buying a new PC.

EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

I have to side with Darkseeker as well. P4 is just too old to do anything with. Get yourself a nice AMD Quad core or Intel i5 system. Post specs or items if you need help configuring a new system. Folks around here live for that kind of thing.
