I'd imagine 450Mhz is the biggest Processor and therefore probably about Geforce 2 or maybe 3 Graphics. RAM has only the ceiling of 4GB but whether it would be worth it is a different matter. I don't think its worth buying any of that if you could even get that type of RAM or that type of Processor anymore.

Sounds like a fun project, like the others said, be prepared to spend a good amount of money, i would just build a new computer for the money you'll spend rebuilding this one....

Only your MBD manual will tell you some of this.You might flash the bios and add some cpu,but you probably won't find one anyway and its a waste of money if you did.
This is a perfectly acceptible 2nd Internet PC,if you need one,if not try to donate it.
