1.44 panasonic floppy disc drive
PCI IDE controller with fast serial ports

hmm i think you should add 256mb more to your current 64mb
40gig should be good enough
the computer will take a pci video card
dont get anything higher than a radeon 9250 or geforcemx4000

well its pretty easy to do it yourself you will problay end up spending more for what you paid for the parts if u ask someone to do it
