Best thing you can do to any eMachines is give it a new power supply if it hasn't had one already. Bestecs die spectacularly, let's put it that way.

The machine has no graphics slots so a new graphics card is not going to happen.
Memory is upgradable - up to 2Gb.
Processor upgrade wise - while it is upgradable it's probably not worth doing as the board will be a cheap piece of under performing garbage anyway. It doesn't support dual-core.
PSU - realistically any power supply will be better than the Bestec it came with.
HDD wise - depends what you want to do, 80Gb is typically more than enough.

After to day and thinking things through im better of building a newer cheaper core 2 set up,i did find out though i could of put in a pci AGP card,but for the price of one of them spend a little more to get a good pci-ex card.
