HI all,

When new my home pc was the billy bollox (2001), it is getting old and slow now and I am looking to buy a new system, after doing research over the past few days I am starting to reconsider and am leaning towards upgrading the parts instead, what I need are any opinions you guys have on the pros and cons of both.
The pc will be used mainly for everyday home use, minor game play and photo editing, but my wife does like to open many apps at once!
Thanks for your time
System specs:
pentium 4 cpu  3.2ghz 3.19 ghz 512mb ram

 If your just mainly surfing the web then sure just an upgrade to more ram would do you good. Be sure to unplug and hit the power button once to release any juice so you dont fry your mother board with a bolt of lightning like I did once. I also upgraded a motherboard for pci-e and bent and broke a cpu pin and had to get another used cpu. So things can go wrong.  But imo you would be better served to get a new pc with Win7 (umm is a billy bollox a apple pc? I cant find any info on it.). You can get a cheap pc that would blow away the one you have. Multi-core would serve you well for gaming, photo editing and lots of running apps. You would be upgrading to more modern cpu, ram, PCI-E and a new SATA hard-drive to fill up. Right now is a exciting time to buy a pc. Price and performance have never been this great with Intel i5 i7 series out and the 5000 series AMD vid cards which have caused a across the board drop in prices for core 2 duo and the 4000 series AMD vid cards. Other bonus is you would have two PCs instead of one.
