Im currently at work (where I have access to the internet!), so I dont have my specs handy. I was already in need of massive system upgrades my 80 GB drive is bursting full, and aside from a new motherboard & power supply 5 years ago and a RAM update 4 years ago, everything in the system is 7 years old, and I am running a shady version of XP Pro. However, I was hoping not to spend too much money until next year, as this year I will be buying a house and paying for a wedding. My question - is it worth it to start by going out to Best Buy or Frys and picking up a hard drive to troubleshoot and possibly continue using some of these old components, or should I bite it and just order everything online from something like Newegg since it's all so old anyhow? I'm figuring I'll be needing motherboard/processor, power supply, RAM, video card, hard drive, OS, and possibly a new surge protector to be safe if I decide to rebuild.
