wow pretty good spec. Wouldn't think you'd need an upgrade. But i see the graphics card could be upgraded to an even powerful one, just my opinion, with at least 256 mb ddr on it. Maybe a stick of 512 DDR, the more mem the better eh? But i'd leave everything else.

I'd be pleased to have this spec, so would many others. Problem with upgrading from this is that you're well into the laws of leading edge technology and dimishing returns: ie, a small improvement in performance = an enormous sum of money proportionately.

How about a nice shiny new keyboard??!!....

Thanks, I would think about both comment, like the idea of a better graphics card and a nice microsoft bluetooth keyboard.

thanks

It all depends on what you use the pc for, as to what you should upgrade.

Most people would be exstatic with the system you have.

seriously don't bother about what you're using it for. When people say that to me, i would be 'I'm not wasting my money on something that can only word process etc' You have a great spec now and a good gfx card would finish it off. I see you have a dvd/rw a gfx card will benifit when you stream videos or something similar. No offense meant [email protected] E

I agree with your comments.

If you enjoy games, then a good sound system may also merit consideration?
