You would need a PSU greater than 350watts to run a P4, Motherboard, new heatsink/fan and of course processor. You may need to upgrade graphics too.

If it is a special case designed for under monitor use, then you would need a ATX case, with a PSU too.

These can cost anything from £20 - £400

I would suggest just a £35 case or something.

The reality is is that your machine is too long in the tooth to seriously consider upgrading. Gaz25's list should also include RAM and it is likely you only have a small hard drive and slow CD Rom drive.

When a company like Mesh can supply a fully spec'd machine for £499 click here a self build / upgrade is simply not cost effective
