Build a new computer. Because no amount of upgrades on your current pc is worth spending on turning it into a gaming machine.

Agreed. Your system is outdated & poorly configured...it isn't worth investing any money in.

"do tell me what hardware to get and if it is so poorly configured,plz post a reasonable configuration"

OK buddy, you asked for it...here's what you'll need:

GIGABYTE AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 motherboard - $65

AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz CPU - $65

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2-10664 RAM - $50

CORSAIR 550W power supply - $70

Radeon HD 4830 512MB video card - $75

The total is $325. Keep in mind that this is a budget rebuild. You *should* be able to reuse your old HDD, optical drive & floppy drive. Of course, Windows will have to be reinstalled & you will NOT be able to use any of your HP discs. You *may* be able to use your old case, but only if the hardware will fit in it.

So would you rather people not be honest with you and give you a bunch a bull and make you spend a lot of money on an old pc that's still going to underperform with modern games?
