    Since my brother in law went to college for computer science, he has tought me a good deal, I will probably be looking for a new motherboard, and if not, I will probably upgrade to hopefully 4 GB of RAM, and A bigger harddrive, I have to open it up still to see clean it out though, and probably replace the fan, and I was also thing of changing the LED lights on there so it looks cooler.

    are you upgrading for gaming, or just in general for performance?

    Alright. well Could put in 4 GB RAM, i dont think you need to go to 8, but if you want to. Motherboard seems out-of-date (or old, whatever you prefer) so it might not have the right prong input for newer CPU's. so i guess Get a Motherboard that is compatible with Intel Core i5 or something like that. If you want stronger, be my guest but since you wont be gaming on it, no need to go outrageous. and HDD idk... 500GB-1TB? it was an old set up i had for school work and all. Worked just fine for me.
