I can help you out, by your specs I would just say get ram, and a better video card, and if you can, then overclock your CPU.

Yeah, you don't need to worry about anything on that list of specs except for your vid card. Then if you can, upgrade to a gig of ram whenever possible, but this isn't urgent since 512mb is good enough for now. Everything else is fine.

yeh suppose, but try and get a video card as soon as possible. What do you actually use your comp for, e.g music, msn, gaming. Because if you are a gamer then i stronlgy recomed a mobo, video card and maybe another 512mb of ram.

Also remember when you get your new mopbo, make sure it is compatible with your type of ram.
