Default Memory or new computer?

I received many Best Buy gift cards this Christmas and was thinking of using them to purchase more memory. I'm now deciding whether I should get a new computer instead. The computer I am thinking about is the Compaq Presario Desktop with AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor 3500+. You can view my current system specs here. I am also thinking about 1 GB of memory to add to my current computer. If I get a new computer, I would probably put my 256mb video card in it. Would pc2700 work in a computer that takes pc4200? Would I be able to sell my current computer? If so, around how much? So what do you think I should do? Keep my current computer or get a new one. Thanks for any advice.

(Sorry if this gets posted twice. I received an error the first time.)

That is a tough choice but If it were me I would upgrade and buy some better parts.
