I agree with Mickliq. all you would be saving is the case, which you can do if you wish.

choose to upgrade processor,ram, motherboard.

That is basically the whole computer, you are in effect starting from scratch once you get down to that level. The CPU and RAM will be dependent on which motherboard you chose

The 250W power supply isn't enough for a more modern system & I'm not 100% sure what is meant by a "combo drive". Usually it means a CD burner/DVD-ROM. If that's the case, it should be replaced with a DVD burner. The only thing left would be the case & hard drive. No info was provided about the hard drive but I suspect it would be best to upgrade. It would make more sense to keep the system together & use it as a backup, or just sell it to help finance the new build.

Much agreed, start from scratch if you plan on replacing the motherboard. If you're just interested in speeding up your system add some RAM to your system as long as your motherboard allows.

Look up the specs from the system manufacturer and they should tell you how much memory your motherboard supports.

DDR2 RAM cards are generally inexpensive, $20-$30 per GB.
