I am looking into upgrading my Dell 8200 1.8G to something a little better. I have 512MB of RAM in the box now. Below are the original specs. I have upgraded the RAM and added another hard drive and that's about it.
I really just want to either a) preferably upgrade the motherboard, graphics card, expecting to probably change out the memory and keep everything else intact (hard drives, usb ports, interfaces, etc. or b) gut out the case and start from scratch or c) just buy a new computer.
Any suggestions? I am trying to find the best cost-effective solution. Thanks.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
