    mobo: MS-6524, http://www.msicomputer.com/product/d...c/ms6524gl.htm
    memory: sd ram ( i feel like in the stone age)
    Vcard: msi fx 5600 128
    harddrive: 40gig dunno brand (slow)
    psu: 240v dunno as well (loud)
    sony dvd burner
    liteon dvd
    diamond data cd burner

    For $300 you could probably get a fairly nice AMD CPU and mainbaord right now. You might be able to sqeeze 512 MB system ram in there on that budget if you look hard enough. I personally would wait until you dig up about $300 more then do a good upgrade including the video card. If you don't play video games, then I'd just get a new harddrive and live with what you have, then scrap the system save the harddrive and start fresh when your ready to upgrade.

    I didn't see your from Australia, that might change things totally. Seems $300 doesn't go as far down there.
