I'm ready for something new.. I think? Can I rebuild in the NEC box? I would like a larger hardrive, faster processor (is this the motherboard?), more memory, CDRW and I guess I will need new graphics & sound cards.. I'd like some USB ports too as I have none.. It doesn't have to be the best.. just considerably better than 233MHz/MMX/64MB/6GB I have now.. I use the computer for surfing, business (Quickbooks), word-processing and that's about it. I'm guessing I will need a new operating system right? Can you guys help me get started? Can it be done for ~ $500? Thanks!
