Hello everybody I am coming here today to see if i can get some help on some ideas to prolong the very long life of my friends computer, i am willing to help him out up to around like 200-250$ or so. Now lets see what we can do with this old thing lol.

The computer is this http://docs.us.dell....s.htm#wp1076752

I know, It is a disposable computer and i do not know how he manages to play wow and raid ICC 25 with it. It ran out of hard drive space which is why i am helping him out with it, it was around 20 gigs of space(brings me back lol) and stopped working so i said i would have a look at it

I built my own computer however this computer is from so far back in the day i never really knew anything about stuff back then =) So i would love to have some constructive help from members of this board.

What i want to do is essentially make this as best as it can to be squeeze out maybe another year so he can buy another computer.

So things i figured
Video card---- Has to be PCI
Memory- 2 gigs of ram max
Processor- Can i even change this on this thing?
Power supply if i only really have to-
Hard drive- Not sure what size , he plays wow and its almost 100 gigs by itself these days with everything he has.

Any ideas would be much appreciated thank you.
