Pretty easy -- motherboard manual should describe the simple method.

Note when installing the new CPU, do NOT test it without the heatsink/fan on (even if only for a few secs)... most new CPU clock speeds mean it'll burn out in a few seconds...

make sure ur motherboard can take the ram + cpu.
it might not be compatable with the board.

ram is easier than HD.
CPU is abit trickey, depending which u go for.

btw mate, on that spec machine you might have probs running XP. Well not problems, but it will be fooking slow Run 98 on it and take everything off it that you dont need, and then it should be sorted

Micro-Direct sell some very low cost components, well worth a look, you could get a newer Motherboard, processor and 512mb of ram for less than £100. Keep your existing case, CD/DVD rom power supply and monitor

is not your fault as is easily done with the links at the bottom, just not sure why the mods decided to move it here instead of closing it up.
