Hi. My computer is 2 yrs old and was built by Packard Bell. Please, no Packard Bell jokes, this computer served me well for the last 2 yrs that I have it, and I wonder can I upgrade everything. It's a 400 mhz with 284 PC100 SDRAM ram, it has a AMD K6 proccessor chip, 4.6 hard drive, I'm not sure of the sound or video cards or the mobo. I'm running Windows 98SE. I have a question: Even though the computer is 2 yrs old, is it possible to upgrade to a 1.0 ghz AMD thunderbird, 768MB PC100 SDRAM, 80 gig hard drive, a faster mobo, a better video and sound card, and upgrade to Windows XP Home edition.
People at DSLR says it's not very possible, because of Windows stability, dustbunnies, and the computer is probably too old[this is what they say, not me]. If it's not, do I have to buy a new computer? I don't want to buy a new one, because the one I hae is serving me well and I love it! I want to upgrade the computer so badly so that I can get more advantage out of my cable modem service(Roadrunner) because my cable company recommends as you upgrade your computer, RR service should be more faster. Thanks for any help y'all can give
