Then get 2 gb of ram.
By the way noone told you this, the amd boards do not support ddr2. That is the only drawback to amd. I would rather have the amd x2 dual core that I listed than any intel dual core and I have an Intel pentium 4. In dual core the amd is better. You dont need ddr2, but if you have to have ddr2 you got to go with intel.

Heres the deal:
I have a Systemax P4 3.06 ghz, 1.5 gig ddr, plus the other peripherals, running xp pro (sp2).
I am wanting to upgrade now while I have the $$. System is basically used for internet, bus apps like word, some ripping/burning of music/video. Really no gaming per se unless it's internet play like cards. But I want the most bang for my buck now so I won't have to upgrade for some time. I am the only one in the house with a P4 all my other systems (3 others) are athlon. Would the conversion be simple/painless??
Note: don't really want to buy an entirely new system unless it's the most economical way to go
Budget of around $1000.00

Ya just for upgrading and using your other current harddrive, memory, case, you can get something in your budget for shure.
Get that x2 processor I posted above with a new 939 mobo from dfi, abit, or msi. I dont know if you want a video card because you said you dont do games. Then more memory since you have the funds. Man that x2 with a good mobo with 3gb of total ram would be sweet and no its not overboard.
Depends if you want to use your old ram or not but, 2gb of ram is plenty.

But you dont need an X2 the 3700+ san diegos are dirt cheap and would e more than adequate its really gamers that need the bleeding edge speed over the normal home user as you would seem to be.
