Get a PC with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB or more RAM, and put it all on a quality motherboard like Abit, or DFI (with Intel chipset).

PC is 1000 times better than mac.

If your motherboard doesn't support DDR 2 and SATA upgrade is not a good option. DDR (1) memory is more expensive, slower and has lower capacity, the same is true for PATA hard drives. Your processor is probably Socket 478, I don't think they make new ones like that, you can only hope to find second hand one. Maybe you can find one with 2.8 GHz, but that won't help much.

My recommendation is to by a new PC. If you want to keep this one you can use it as a server, or connect it to a TV and use it for multimedia.

...I don't like or use a Mac but that is such a fanboy quote
also, I don't think OP is planning to build, rather to buy.

so all that said Nighthawk is right about the proc but mem now you'll find 3+GB more useful and honestly prebuilts now seldom have less than 3GB.

Just go to bestbuy and poke around, anything you get will be a world of improvement.
