Need to know the motherboard. click here to DL a programme which will tell you.
You probably will need a CPU and RAM at the very least.
What power supply does it have and what graphics?

Sounds like a socket 478 and being realistic your cpu upgrade would be upto something like a Pentium 4 2.8ghz though maybe upto 3.0ghz.

Adding a gig of ram would help if the motherboard will take it.

Ram is cheap enough nowadays and a recondiditoned cpu off Ebay would keep the cost down.Adding a middle road graphics card may or not be needed...this depending on your needs.

As Ditch says,post the motherboard make and model and we can tell you exactly what you can upgrade to.
