Default What should I upgrade?

I am wondering what I should upgrade in my old comp.

M805LR Motherboard, AMD Duron 800mhz, 512Mb RAM 133mhz, 7.47 GB Quantum HD, WD 80GB, Nvidia GeForce MX 4000, 56K Modem, Windows Xp

Im limited to about $200 and I would prefer to not spend more than $100.

Well, sorry to rain on your parade, but that computer is basically useless in modern applications. It'll run XP alright, but don't even think about Vista.

If you're gonna upgrade, you'd need a whole new computer. You don't have to spend that much, you can get something pretty good for ~$300.

IMO, save up for an entire new computer.

Yea that computer is outdated.

Don't bother spending money on it when you can get a whole new computer.
