although i would suggest you upgrade your hdd as your 100MB HDD won't hold even the latest operating system.
actually, it's 100GB. it's a mistake though. i also added 250GB to it as well.

While I do agree you should wait, I'd keep your eyes peeled in the used market. Ebay or here at OCN in the marketplace. I've seen Radeon 9800's go for like $20 shipped. Same with 7600's (AGP). You could easily find a great AGP card to breathe a LITTLE bit of life into your system for under $30 shipped.

I'd do that, but otherwise, I'd say save for a new build. $500-600 would easily get you a great starter build. Especially if you don't mind some parts being used.
