i would try and double the ramm from 2g to 4g but it depends on what you want it to do ?
we could do with more information on the motherboard ie what socket is it cause if its 775 you could put a better chip in it

thanks for the reply... im not 100% on what mobo it is or if it can handle upto 4gb?? also it is a 775 socket but being a budget pc id rather not replace the most expensive component.

i was thinking more ram if possible
a new gpu and a new hard drive and case.

thanks

ramm and hard drive definatly .
are you going to use it fore gaming?
if so upgrade the gpu if you arent using it for gaming their is little point in upgrading the gpu unless you plan on using blue ray hdmi .
