Unhappy How Bad is My Computer?

First of all my computer is 5 years old and i think it needs a complete overhaul.

Power Supply: Unknown
CPU:Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.80GHz
Ram: Was 512MB, Now is 1Gb Kingston
OS:Windows XP Home Edition
Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 128Mb
Hard Drive: 38GB Unknown Brand
Sound card: Onboard sound card Unknown
Motherboard: Completely Unknown
CD Drives: One CD-RW Unknown Speed and One DVD Drive 12x or 16x Speed

It may seem that I have no idea why i need a complete overhual but my computer can get so bad with viruses and just i have to delete everything and reinstall my OS again. If anyone out there has any programs that can scan a computer to see what it has in it that would be great.

Also i have run into a major problem with my OS and fount that I can't install SP2 on it at all. Without that i had a good time trying to install Vista.

I have a good Computer I am thinking to buy at Tigerdirect.com and want to know if it is a good system. And please i am in need of this because in the gaming world there are mean people that like to hack WoW players. I got hacked and I refuse to play on this computer in fear of KEYLOGGERS

Any help is Greatly Appreciated.

It's not TOO terrible. I still have a 2.0 P4 512MB machine running strong (and it's a Dell too!). If I were you I'd throw in like a 7800 AGP card and add a hard drive, maybe change out the disc drive, and call it a day. Wouldn't be too expensive.

You could build that system yourself for about $300.

Pentium D 935: $105
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116262

Abit IB9: $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127018

1 GB DDR2-667: $50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227077

7300GS: $50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130270

Plus the other parts, but that's $300 for the barebone, plus probably better quality parts than in the prebuilt.

Don't really pay attention to the vid card ram, usually it doesn't make much of a difference. Also I'd at least grab a 7600 since they are so reasonably priced now, I would never own a 7300. 256 will certainly get the job done, I got a 512 7900GT KO since it was almost as good as a GTS for a few less.

Edit: whoops this is D-Lew again, I keep forgetting not to use my bro's computer.

well , that computer is pretty decent but it all depends on what you need to do with it , it obviously aint gonna play any of the latest games , i have system that is only slightly better than that when i get my new gpu,ram and hard drive but then i am not a hardcore pc gamer at all and mainly use my pc to make life easier with stuff like school work
