Hi Itz and welcome.

I wish to upgrade the PC with newest technology keeping into mind the interfaces I need

Sadly, you didn't tell us anything - like what interfaces you need. We also don't know the intended purpose of this machine, or your budget.

However, with Windows 2000, only 256Mb of old technology RAM, an obsolete CPU, a 10 year old motherboard, and most likely, a power supply incapable of supporting today's technologies, it seems clear that you need a whole new computer. Upgrading your existing computer, if you can find any compatible parts, still will not get you anywhere near the "newest technology".

Sorry, but it is time to retire that computer, and get something new.

At first thanks for the reply and the greetings

Secondly the recommendation leads me to the next question i.e Which configuration is suitable for my application

Use: Laboratory PC
Cost: Not a concern (< Euro 1000)

- Windows XP
- Minimum 4GB DDR3-RAM
- 500GB HDD
- Card reader
- DVD Read Write
- Interfaces
o Firewire
o PCI-MIO-16E-4 (Updated if available)
o RME DIGI96/8 PAD (24 Bit Analog I/O) (Updated if available)
o USB 3.0
thanking you,
