I currenly own a P90 computer with an relatively small hard disk and little memory - is it a cheaper/more practical option to upgrade this machine to new processor/motherboard etc.. than to start from scratch and buy a ready built one ???

Compaq will be offering a P300 with a 4.1GB HDD and 64MB of memory for $700.

You are better off upgrading everything by buying a new system. You might use the older one as a backup for emergency or trade it in - not much cash tho.

smegghead remember these cheap systems are not always your best bet .when you go to play a bran new video game and you find you need to upgrade to play it .In reading your pofile you have enough years in these to know what you want by now! Don't
let them sell you a one or two meg video card if it doesn't have at least four meg it's not worth it .Also you might try some
internet auctions www.onsale.com this site has been real nice,
and cost efective (I got a pentium amdk-6 233 mhz 32meg ram 2.5gig HD for $350 with two year warrenty)
