    Current specs:

    Intel P4 1.5 Ghz
    Kinston RD128MB PC800 Rambus +
    256 stick = 384 MB
    40 GB HD
    GF2 32MB vid card
    OB AC97 Audio (no idea what it is...all i know is it sucks)

    Besides saying 'buy a new computer', any ideas?
    I'm trying to keep costs as low as possible...preferably between $100-400.

    yea i guess 2x64 and 2x128 for total of 384.


    I use my computer for internet, school, and I want to get some games running on it.

    Power supply?? i have no idea what you're talking about.

    you can upgrade to an ATi 9800pro 128mb and up the ram.... after when you save more money upgrade your cpu because that will be a bottleneck to the computer.

    by the way, this is my motherboard:
    Intel 850MD Chipset P4 ATX MB

    I can get a graphic card for around 150 i guess, plus two 512 sticks of ram for another 250....

    any specific ideas for cpu?
