Okay so there is a third computer now.

I'll see what I can do. The 40GB drive needs to stay though, there definitely won't be enough room in that budget for a new one.

Perfect then.

Same as before, parts will come up one at a time, be patient.

Replace these parts:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-698-_-Product

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-012-_-Product

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-086-_-Product

i went over a little, but it is definitely worth it. The computer has a "220w" power supply, but I really need you to open it up and tell me the +12v amperage.

1. Upgrade the current one. All the main components need to be swapped out either way, so you will end up with basically the same thing.

2. DDR2.

Please open the computer up and read the +12v amperage off the power supply label. This is very important because I migh need to change the video card to prevent the psu from dying.

The +12v is what I really need. If you could take a pic of the label that'd work too I guess.
