The thing is everything else is dated. Well the graphics card is crap too. So I was thinking I can go 2 routes. First is buy a new computer entirely, or buy certain parts. I would essentially replace everything except the modem(this thing has a wireless bluetooth device which makes connecting to the internet wireless free), power supply(I believe it's a 550w), tower(it's pretty big and I could fit whatever I want in it), soundcard, harddrives(I want to keep Win7 plus all the near terabytes of information I have collected over the years), and the Bluray/HDDVD(yes this is how old this thing is)burner disc drive it has.
This leaves me looking at a new motherboard that can run a modern CPU, graphics card, and ram.
The current processor is a Q9450 2.66z intel core 2 quad.
The graphics card is a Radeon 6670 HD(the original was a 8800 GTX but it died on me)
I have 6 gigs of ram. Nothing special so its probably all DDR2 crap.
My other option is just go computer shopping. Find something in the 700-900 dollar range just for the tower, but I feel as though since I already have a lot of pieces that can be transfered over to a more modern motherboard that can run a better processor I would be wasting money and I could get better core parts for the same price.
