Now, with this system being old, and me not being in possession of an incredibly gifted computer-knowledgeable mind. I am wanting to do as many upgrades as I can without changing the mobo. Now I am assuming that since this is an older computer that even the top of the line parts (for this mobo-specific) are not the most expensive out there. I know that the mobo says it can support up to 3GB of memory so I'd say I would want to at least go from 1GB (current) to 2GB or more if needed. As for the CPU, I just cannot find anywhere on the internet (I may not be searching google correctly), that will tell me what is the max/best CPU that this mobo can handle and is still available. Same goes for the graphics card, which I haven't mentioned that I would love to be able to add a TV tuner, but it is not necessary, it would just be cool.
So my questions are, what is the best CPU, the best memory and best graphics card that I can get to upgrade this particular mobo/computer. And is this a good idea? Would I be better off only upgrading one part of this system? Any help would be much appreciated. Below is what I have been looking at already but quite honestly, I am not smart enough to know if these things are compatible or not.
